Youth Count! Process Study Release
Tuesday, July 30, 2013 from 10:00 AM to 11:30 AM (EDT)
Homelessness among unaccompanied youth is a hidden problem: the number of young people who experience homelessness each year is largely unknown. To improve the national response to youth homelessness, policymakers need better data on the magnitude of the problem. Youth Count! is a Federal interagency initiative that aims to improve counts of unaccompanied homeless youth. Nine communities participated in the initiative by expanding their annual homeless point-in-time efforts to increase coverage of homeless youth. The Urban Institute conducted a process evaluation of the initiative to identify promising practices that could be adapted and taken to scale to produce credible and useful data nationwide.
Researchers from Urban Institute will present findings from the study and discuss implications for future counts of unaccompanied homeless youth.
The Urban Institute gathers data, conducts research, evaluates programs, offers technical assistance overseas, and educates Americans on social and economic issues — to foster sound public policy and effective government.
