Wilder report: State has more than 2,000 homeless youth

Body: 

The latest snapshot of youth homelessness contains bad news and good news. The bad news: the number is high. A September report by Wilder Research estimates 2,211 youth ages 17 and under are homeless in Minnesota. The good news: Nearly all minors, 95 percent, are now enrolled in school.
