Join this funder call to discuss a model of preventing youth homelessness and why prevention remains the focus of the Funders Network for Youth Success (FNYS), a group of Funders Together members working toward solutions to prevent and end youth homelessness. You’ll learn about national and local policy efforts specific to prevention, Funders Together’s recent and upcoming programming on the issue, and what we are learning from our Canadian neighbors on their progress. You will also glean from leaders with lived experience on their vision for prevention within the broader movement to end homelessness, in addition to sharing what your foundation is prioritizing.
By participating in the event, you will:
- Understand one model of youth homelessness prevention and how Funders Together is pursuing it
- Share what your foundation is prioritizing related to youth homelessness through an interactive exercise
- Hear from a leader with lived experience about their vision for prevention as part of the larger movement to end youth homelessness
