The Nitish Kumar led Bihar government indirectly runs around 110 short-stay and shelter homes for homeless girls, women, boys and juveniles illegally. These shelter homes are given funds by the Bihar government and run by non-governmental organisations (NGOs). Their funding is decided by the Bihar government based on their current performance report.
