Join us to help address the intersections of youth homelessness and juvenile justice. Apply today for a unique training and technical assistance opportunity to address the intersections of youth justice and youth homelessness. Your community has the chance to be a national leader in addressing the issue of youth homelessness and juvenile justice, a critical issue for our young people.
- Each year,1 in 30 young people across the country between the ages of 13 - 17 experience homelessness.
- A separate study found that nearly half of all young adults who had experienced homelessness also reported that they had spent time in jail, prison, or a detention facility.
Over the course of the next 12 months, selected communities will identify how local policies and practices align with the recommendations in the Principles for Change. Selected communities will take an in-depth look at current data and resources in their community, identify gaps in services, and establish concrete, measurable goals to end links between youth homelessness and juvenile justice.
