Plan to help eliminate youth homelessness begins

Today, the state is rolling out a new plan to help eliminate youth homelessness in Connecticut.



The state has pledged $12 million to build new supportive housing to get youths off the streets.



A state-wide count performed last year determined that 3,000 people under the age of 25 were living on the streets.



Officials say it's part of the state plan to eliminate homelessness by 2020.
