Compared family environments for probability sample of 118 homeless adolescents residing in shelters to matched comparison group of 118 housed adolescents. Found that, after controlling for behavior-disorder effects and alcohol abuse, homeless adolescents experienced more parental maltreatment than housed adolescents, and reported feelings of less parental love, less family cohesion, and more family conflict in general.
