Register now for our annual Funders Forum! This year's event will focus on "Philanthropy's Role in Ending Family and Youth Homelessness."
For the past two years, Funders Together to End Homelessness (FTEH) ran a Community of Practice focused on funders’ roles in ending youth and young adult homelessness. This community, Foundations for Youth Success (FYS), brought together philanthropic leaders -- large, national funders as well as those working at the community level -- to identifying best practices and implement effective solutions for our young people. Throughout this two-year initiative, members participated in regular virtual meetings and came together in person twice a year.
At this year’s Funders Forum in Houston, FYS members will share takeaways from this community and resources that were created from the various learning opportunities. Attendees will also hear more about the new youth network FTEH has created as an extension of the FYS community.
In addition, FTEH will share examples of the important impact economic security can have on ending homelessness for families and youth. The conversation will focus on what's happening now and FTEH's plans for creating a second Community of Practice focused on economic security and employment.
