The Faces of Homeless Youth is an in-depth report on the epidemic of youth homelessness in the City of Philadelphia intended to shed light on an issue that impacts the city every day. NBC10 digital reporters Vince Lattanzio and Morgan Zalot delved into the issue over a two-month period by embedding themselves in the only crisis shelter in the city that exclusively serves young adults, as well as by spending time on city streets interviewing young people who are currently in the throes of homelessness. This project would not have been possible without the young people who generously gave of their time and courageously entrusted NBC10 with their stories.
