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.

Get the street family mug.
Street family culture derives from homeless youth. Often times disabled homeless youth, or just youth that no one cares about. In some places, street family members grow into adults and stay in the family.

What can you do, when you are young, and no one cares about you? Children tend to have very active imagination, children like to play house.

A street family is a pretentious family created by children not being protected.

It isn't necessarily violent, but there is often drama, as drama comes with poverty.

Street families tend to disregard traditional family roles. In fact, in some cases, that includes having nonsensical roles, like the street mom's street brother being also the street brother of the street mom's street son.

Street family members tend to be extremely vulnerable leading to victimization, which includes police misconduct.

The tone varries, but street family members are easily replaceable to the outside world, however, if they were conditional towards each other, they wouldn't last.

In this hypothetical street family, it lasted more than 10 years. Billy is 23, being one of the youngest, he joined at 14, with ODD and being abused after getting abandoned.
Billy has been stabbed in the back lots of times by his street family, but he stays because it's his security.
They are afraid, held together by fight or flight. The entire point is to pretend that there is stability where there is none.
Bitzy is my street mom in my street family. We kinda just vibe.
