Prostitution is not glamourous, but it is a violent reality for some homeless individuals. When individuals are homeless, they often resort to desperate measures to obtain a meal, shelter for the night, or quick money to obtain those items. If a youth is homeless and underage, finding a job is difficult
and they are often solicited.
