U.S. Government Sets Goal to End Youth Homelessness in 10 Years
On June 22, 2010, the U.S. Interagency Council on Homelessness released the nation’s first comprehensive strategy to prevent and end homelessness: Opening Doors: The Federal Strategic Plan to Prevent and End Homelessness.
One of the objectives in the plan is to advance health and housing stability for youth exiting foster care and juvenile justice systems.
The Interagency Working Group on Youth Programs’ Solutions Desk for Helping Youth Transition will continue to publish best practices for homelessness prevention, rapid re-housing, and service provision for homeless youth.
