I’ve worked with families/youth experiencing homelessness for decades. Many are experts at dysfunctional family survival. (My own sort-of-dysfunctional family experience pales.) What you say about their resilience giving them invaluable enteprenural skills is true. What might be a sizable obstacle is the difficult financial hurtle. Now, more than ever, it takes an almost insurmountable amount of income to survive, much less thrive.
