The Youth Homelessness Demonstration Program (YHDP) is designed to reduce the number of youth experiencing homelessness. The goal of the YHDP is to support selected communities, including rural, suburban, and urban areas across the United States, in the development and implementation of a coordinated community approach to preventing and ending youth homelessness. Communities that are selected will work with their youth advisory boards, child welfare agencies, and other community partners to create a comprehensive community plan to end youth homelessness.
As the YDHP funds are provided to communities, private funders have engaged in different ways. Through their partnerships with the community, many funders have learned a lot of lessons in the process. This call will provide the opportunity for funders to hear from colleagues across the country who are in various stages of developing and sustaining their YHDP work. This will also be a great opportunity for communities who may be interested in or have previously applied for funding to hear about how communities have brought together key stakeholders to leverage their YHDP funding.
Join us for what will be an engaging conversation highlighting communities, like Seattle and Baltimore, as they navigate the nuances of the YDHP funding opportunity. We will hear from staff at the Raikes Foundation and the Annie E. Casey Foundation about how they engaged with their community around their YHDP funding.
