Youth homelessness in Oregon is a growing concern, as it is nationally. In an effort to support homeless youth, the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD) implemented the Foster Youth to Independence (FYI) program, which provides housing vouchers to former foster youth. In Oregon, 4 of the 24 public housing authorities have applied for and received FYI vouchers. In Oregon, and nationally, many former foster youth have yet to benefit from this resource.
