100 children sleep outside every night in Santa Fe
Every child deserves a safe, warm place to sleep, every single night.
Youth Shelters and Family Services serves more than 1,000 homeless, runaway, and in-crisis youth and family members each year. Most are local—75% from Santa Fe and Santa Fe County alone—and another 10% from other communities in Northern New Mexico. Youth from elsewhere in the state and around the country also access services.
This year, more than 1.7 million children in America will be homeless.
It is a serious problem in this country as well as right here in Santa Fe.
