The National Clearinghouse on Homeless Youth and Families works in partnership with multiple partners to support youth who are or at risk of homelessness or contemplating running away. We understand that homelessness is a public health issue. The public health approach emphasizes input from diverse sectors including health, education, social services, housing, justice, policy, and the private and nonprofit sectors. Collective action on the part of these key collaborators can help in addressing, preventing and ending homelessness.
NCHYF routinely collaborates with multiple partners by participation on committees and workgroups, developing resources, promoting research, toolkits, and other relevant materials to support service providers, academia and policy makers.
