Although there are no exact figures, youth and young adults make up an estimated 15% of homeless people and are currently one of the most vulnerable groups. There has been a recent shift to expensive housing as a part of overall rising prices but a large number of people are unable to cope with such pressure (Novinky.cz, 2014).
