In November, researchers from Chapin Hall at the University of Chicago released Missed Opportunities: Youth Homelessness in America, a summary of findings from their groundbreaking, multi-component study, Voices of Youth Count, on the extent and nature of youth homelessness in America. Understanding the scope and prevalence of youth homelessness is critical, as intervening in homelessness and building stability during adolescence will have a lifelong effect.
Join Dr. Matthew Morton, Research Fellow at Chapin Hall, to learn about his team’s research and findings. Aimee Hendrigan, Vice President of Programs, at Melville Charitable Trust, and Katie Hong, Director of Youth Homelessness at Raikes Foundation, will weigh in on how grantmakers can take the lead in making ending youth homelessness a priority in our country.
The research brief and one-page overview are available at http://voicesofyouthcount.org/brief/national-estimates-of-youth-homelessness/.
This funder-focused event is open to foundations, United Ways, individual philanthropists, philanthropy serving organizations, and invited guests only. Please contact us regarding requests to extend an invitation.
