PA: New after-school drop-in center for Scranton teens to open soon
Times-Tribune – October 09, 2017
According to a recent survey in 11 NEPA counties, there were 310 homeless teens in ninth through 12th grades, she said. Of those, 32 teens from Lackawanna County were homeless, she said. They may stay temporarily at friends’ homes, shelter near the Lackawanna River, sleep in cars or at relatives’ homes, or go into foster care. Such moves could displace the teens from their social networks, which could be detrimental to them.
