LFCC has been completing work under a Poverty Reduction Strategy Office (PRSO) grant since 2015, and an important part of the project involves researching youth poverty in London Ontario. Through this research, we have sought to better understand the factors and experiences that may contribute to poverty in the lives of youth, and the benefit of having a service coordinator respond quickly to their daily life needs. We have attached chapters (and one research snapshot) which highlight our findings around how housing, employment, mental health and other factors affect the lives of court and justice-involved youth.
