USICH Requests Your Ideas on Educational Outcomes for Children and Youth, and Ending Youth Homelessness
April 12, 2012
In 2010, with the input and support from thousands of stakeholders across the United States, USICH launched the first-ever comprehensive federal strategic plan to prevent and end homelessness, Opening Doors. Together, over the last two years, we have made progress against the bold goals of the Plan by increasing investment in solutions, adopting proven tools to prevent and end homelessness, breaking down silos, and improving data collection, analysis, and reporting. We remain committed to the goals of Opening Doors and to the comprehensive approach described in the Plan.
For this year's update to Opening Doors, we are responding to requests that additional content and clarity would be helpful in two key areas: early childhood learning and educational outcomes for youth and children experiencing homelessness and broad strategies on unaccompanied youth up through age 24.
