The launch of Away Home America also kicks off the 100-Day Challenge to end youth homelessness, community by community, and yours can be a part of the movement.
Last week, Funders Together CEO, Amanda Andere, shared her experience at the White House Policy Briefing on Ending Youth Homelessness and the A Way Home America official launch! We at Funders Together are thrilled to have been a part of the effort from the beginning and to add our knowledge and expertise moving forward.
A Way Home America (AWHA) is made up of providers, advocates, researchers, government agencies, philanthropists and young people uniting behind a common goal:
To prevent and end homelessness among all youth and young adults in 2020. We're working to ensure that homelessness among youth and young adults is rare, and if it occurs, experiences of homelessness are brief and one-time.
You can join too! Take action with us & help spread the word. You can learn more about AHWA on the website and through this quick overview.
Launch a 100-Day Challenge
Although AWHA has just launched, they have hit the ground running to build a community around ending youth homelessness. By partnering with Health & Human Services, Housing and Urban Development and Funders Together members, Raikes Foundation, Melville Charitable Trust, and Casey Family Programs, A Way Home America is inviting three communities to support national learning through launching a 100-Day Challenge. These 100-Day Challenges will identify and execute innovative practices to end youth & young adult homelessness, community by community.
To learn more visit the AWHA website, here. If you are interested, they are asking communities to express their interest in this work by completing this form by June 20, 2016.
