We cannot end youth homelessness until we prevent it. Feasible, sustainable solutions require many things, including the participation of young people, the reliance on evidence, consideration of multiple public systems with roles in youth well-being, the benefit of knowledge gained on the front lines, a vision of equity, and a posture that empowers young people.
In this webinar, we will be exploring the Youth Homelessness Prevention Initiative, which will be developing a national strategy to prevent youth homelessness that integrates all those components and reflects a diverse array of stakeholder voices. Chapin Hall will discuss how they are developing this collaborative agenda and movement for action and evidence-building around prevention. While this national work will be launching early next year, we will hear from the Washington State Office of Homeless Youth about their multi-prong state-level work on the prevention of youth homelessness, which includes co-designing with young people with lived expertise. Whether on the national level or on the state level, funders can play a role in supporting the focus on rigorous prevention research and evaluation. Join us for this engaging conversation with funders and providers who are exploring strategies to prevent youth homelessness.
