"In California, you either have it all or nothing."
In our project, we explore the relationship between youth homelessness and mental health. During our research process, we met three individuals who had been homeless in the past year. These individuals came to Larkin Street Youth Services to receive education services, mental health aid and a multitude of other resources. Our photo illustrations represent the beauty and hardship of the Tenderloin, the district containing San Francisco's largest homeless population, that is engrained within these young men. San Francisco's homeless population receives some of the best healthcare treatment within the United States, bringing many homeless youth to the city.
