Webinar: Preliminary Intervention Model for Ending Youth Homelessness
This webinar explains the Preliminary Intervention Model, designed to help communities identify the systems and capacity necessary to meet the needs of all youth experiencing homelessness.
Ending youth homelessness requires partnership and coordinated efforts in communities and at every level of government. The Federal Framework to End Youth Homelessness includes a Preliminary Intervention Model, designed to help communities identify the systems and capacity necessary to meet the needs of all youth experiencing homelessness.
This model was developed with two, complementary commitments: 1) using the best available scientific evidence from research involving youth experiencing homelessness to guide the contents of the model, and 2) incorporating a risk and protective factors perspective into understanding the diversity of youth experiencing homelessness. The model targets specific changes in the life of a young person experiencing homelessness that increase the likelihood of getting the youth to positive core outcomes.
