Preventing and Ending Youth Homelessness: A Coordinated Community Response

September 18, 2015

This document provides a preliminary vision for a coordinated response to ending youth homelessness.

In Opening Doors, we set a national goal to prevent and end youth homelessness by 2020. To get there, it will take everyone - government, non-profits, business, and philanthropy - to make sure every community has the capacity to achieve the goal. Preventing and Ending Youth Homelessness, a Coordinated Community Response provides a preliminary vision for such a response. It draws upon what we know works to end homelessness for other populations, along with strategies that support the unique needs of unaccompanied youth and young adults under 25. Use this document to advance discussions in your communities and build upon the work already underway.
