Contrary to popular opinion, one of the main causes of homelessness is that low income earners simply cannot afford housing.

HOMELESSNESS AMONGST YOUNG PEOPLE

Hi! Thank you so much for visiting The Nesting Place run by the Youth Advisory Board of Summit County. We are so excited you want to learn more about us and hope most of your questions can be answered here on our website.

We assure you, we work diligently to alleviate the ills of youth who face the challenges or risk of being homeless. Many of our members themselves were either homeless or at risk and most live here in Summit County. In other words, we are passionately committed to the task before us because we have experienced first hand what many of these young people experience.

We are a group of young men and women with diverse sets of experiences and ways of thinking. We believe that this structure creates powerful solutions to complex problems because it allows the challenge of homelessness to be analyzed thoroughly and from multiple perspectives.

We invite you to engage with us and join this exceptional group of young people in our mission to end youth at risk in Summit County.
