Abstract or Summary
  • Most studies suggest that LGBTQ+ young adults make up between 20 and 40 percent of the houseless young adult population (Edidin, Ganim, Hunter, and Karnik 2011; Nolan 2006). However, LGBTQ+ young adults compose only 1.3–3.8% of the general young adult population (Rosario, Schrimshaw, and Hunter 2012). Thus LGBTQ+ young adults are overrepresented in the houseless population. By using a methodology based on previous community needs assessment studies conducted in Oregon regarding rural houselessness (Edwards, Torgerson, and Sattem 2009), I (1) identify current services for the LGBTQ+ houseless population and (2) examine the experiences of LGBTQ+ young adults in accessing those services. This paper uses Schneider and Ingram's social construction theory to understand the advantages and disadvantages conferred on this unique population, encompassing the intersection of the experienced identities of youth, LGBTQ+, and houseless. I provide a best practices guide.
