Homeless and runaway youth would be able to stay longer in New York City’s crisis shelters under new legislation set to be introduced in the City Council, with one bill that would allow teens and young people to stay in the shelters for 120 days, and another that would let New Yorkers up to age 25 stay in youth shelters, the Daily News writes.
