Since the start of the year, there’s been a serious uptick in the number of young adults living with their parents. In January, 46 percent of 18 to 29-year-olds reported living with one or more parents. By the summer, that number jumped to 52 percent, according to Pew Research Center.
Many young adults lost jobs or wages and were forced to move back home, or needed to take care of a parent. Others were relocated from a college campus and still in flux. Regardless, the coronavirus pandemic has driven the percent of young adults living with their parents to an all-time high.
To help young adults fly the coop and help parents empty the nest once again, Yelp is issuing some people $2,000 gift cards to cover some expenses of a move. Entering for a chance to win is easy, and can help get you or your kids back on the right financial track!
