Healthy relationships with adults are an essential part of positive youth development. A supportive friendship or mentorship can give homeless youth the ability to take control of their lives. It can protect against some of the risk factors that threaten many homeless youth and can even ease the traumas that arise from life on the street. Positive relationships mitigate the ever-present dangers of abuse, exploitation, and trafficking.
