You might try a search on the homeless hub website:
http://www.homelesshub.ca/hh/?lang=EN which has an extensive library, with a
lot of hits on homeless youth, including large amounts of grey literature
that you might not find elsewhere.

Subject: [URBANTH-L]youth in group homes, displaced youth

I'm trying to find ANY ethnographic literature done on youth in group home
settings, as well as any literature on how youth cope with/adapt to
displacement (for any reason -- child welfare system, migration, warfare,
etc.).  Although I have come across many readings about how/why displacement
occurs (war, damn building, etc.) - I have seen virtually nothing on how
youth manage these experiences.  I'm intentionally trying to avoid
traditional psych style research on coping, and am interested in how youth
make meaning of these experiences, how they reform social networks, what
kinds of resources they use to re-establish material stability/security, and
a sense of connection and belonging.  Any ideas would be very much
