One service provider for homeless youth, Street Teens, did not fully participate in yesterday's census count. Other social service providers and even homeless youth are raising questions about Street Teens. Ky Plaskon reports.

Street Teens did participate in the homeless teen count in November 2005. Confirmation was not available as the story went to air.

A state law allowing minors to receive services relating to homelessness went into effect 2001 not 2000 as noted in this story.

Senator Richard Bryan was not present at the Street Teens benefit described in this story.

Alicia Troiani is the program coordinator, not the program director.

Lisa Preston was not named on tax forms as the treasurer of Street Teens.

Nevada Public Radio regrets these errors.
