The Los Angeles Youth Network

Tonight more than 10,000 youth will sleep on the streets of Los Angeles.

Instead of a bed, these kids will sleep in abandoned buildings and under freeways and wake each morning without food, water or basic medical service. While some leave their homes on their own volition, many are thrown out or abandoned on the street; a burden their families no longer want or need. Of the 12-17 year old runaways we see, most of their parents never report them missing.

Founded in 1984, The Los Angeles Youth Network (LAYN) is a California non-profit organization whose mission is to end homelessness one kid at a time, by providing shelter, food and counseling for the abused,
neglected and abandoned. The goals for each child are to successfully complete the permanent transition away from street life to a safe and secure living environment and to fully participate in society.
