What programs help youth struggling with homelessness?

Evaluating a systems approach to address youth homelessness

Over a year, between 1.3 and 1.7 million youth experience at least 1 night of homelessness; more than 500,000 youth be homeless for a week or longer. In addition to youth living on the streets and in shelters, many more youth are at risk of homelessness.

The U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development is funding 10 diverse communities to build coordinated systems to prevent and end youth homelessness. 

Westat is conducting a 4-year evaluation, examining the implementation and outcomes of this effort.
