According to, World Health Organization, suicide is the third leading cause of death in 15-19 year old and the major causes are depression and other mental health disorders, homelessness, substance abuse, family violence, sexual abuse, and bulling. As of January 20,2019, Virginia had an estimated 5,783 experiencing homelessness on any given day, as reported by, Continuums of Care to the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD). Of that total, 642 were family households, 447 were Veterans, 248 were unaccompanied, young adults (ages 18-24) and 881 were individuals experiencing chronic homelessness. Our Children - Public school data reported to the U.S. Department of Education during the 2016-2017 school year (most recent data) shows that an estimated 18,577 public school students experienced homelessness over the course of one year.
