As communities around the country battle evictions and the increasing lack of affordable housing, the challenges of preventing and ending homelessness for certain populations have become more pronounced. With the closure of schools and the decline of additional community supports due to COVID, the youth homelessness movement has evolved. Organizations working with young people experiencing homelessness are working to continue to address youth homelessness effectively with age and culturally appropriate models of accommodation and supports.
This call will provide funders the opportunity to meet with national youth homelessness partners to hear how they are approaching their work in the coming year. Funders will also discuss how they can better engage with young people with lived expertise to advance their work both nationally and locally. Participants will be able to have small group discussions with each national organization to learn what key work they are looking to move forward over the next year, as well as provide possible ways for funders to engage to advance the work of the greater movement.
