A street family is a group of homeless teenagers. They average in age from 12 to 22 years old. A street family will have a so called "father" or "mother" figure who is (or both) head of the pack. A street family has a code amongst thiers that "everything that is yours is also ours" and if you don't hand it over your gonna get fucked up or possibly killed. If you are in a street family and you lie or snitch to the group, you will be killed. Members of a street family will hustle, steal, prostitute or sell dope in order to survive. Street family looks somewhat more colorful and diverse than a group of gutter punks and are not as smart too. Some street family groups look like townies that came out of the sewer.
Back in 2003 in Portland Oregon. A 22 year old retarded woman befriended a street family. The street family later killed her by stabbhing her and setting her on fire along the east banks of the Willamette river. The reason why she was killed is that she was suspected of spreading rumors that one of the members was doing a little prostitution.
