Abstract: 

The Coalition for Juvenile Justice (CJJ) developed this resource for policymakers, practitioners, and other stakeholders as a guide to applying the principles outlined in the organizations’ earlier report, “Addressing the Intersections of Juvenile Justice Involvement and Youth Homelessness: Principles for Change.” The goal of this guide is to help communities prevent homelessness among juvenile justice-involved young adults and to decrease the likelihood that young adults experiencing homelessness become involved with the juvenile justice system. CJJ provides recommendations for action following each of the 10 principles. (author abstract modified)
