The term ``shelter restriction'' refers to state statutes that restrict homeless youths' access to shelters by stipulating that minors' presence be reported by shelter staff. Shelter restriction statutes vary by state in terms of the length of time the shelter staff has to report the location of the child, what body or group receives the report, and the method of reporting.
