Abstract

The Children’s Bureau, within the Administration for Children and Families (U.S. Department of Health and Human Services), funded a multi-phase grant program to build the evidence base on what works to prevent homelessness among youth and young adults who have been involved in the child welfare system. Known as Youth At-Risk of Homelessness (YARH), this program funded 18 organizations for the first phase for two years. During the planning phase, grantees conducted data analyses to help understand their local population and develop comprehensive service models to improve outcomes in housing, education and training, social well-being, and permanent connections. This issue brief offers insight into the important questions that arose from the planning phase about how to continue interventions to prevent homelessness among this population without federal funding. Furthermore, the authors present the lessons learned about the types of support grantee participants will need in their efforts to reduce youth homelessness moving forward.

Home, Together: The Federal Strategic Plan to Prevent and End Homelessness

Home, Together: The Federal Strategic Plan to Prevent and End Homelessness
Electronically published journal article, but not part of an issue

Abstract

The United States Interagency Council on Homelessness (USICH), an interagency federal initiative, has developed its strategic plan to prevent and end homelessness for fiscal years 2018 through 2022. The plan identifies and describes essential federal strategies intended to help states, communities, and public and private partners to build effective, lasting systems that work toward meeting the current USICH goals and to help respond to housing instability and homelessness in the future. The plan also seeks to serve as a road map for non-federal agencies and partners, providing a detailed framework through which they can identify and implement their own strategic activities and align their efforts with federal agencies and other partners. USICH presents these strategies as the eight objectives of the Home, Together plan.
