Event Details

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.

Panelists:

  • Nan Roman, president, National Alliance to End Homelessness (moderator)
  • Mary Cunningham, senior research associate, Urban Institute
  • Megan Gibbard, Homeless Youth and Young Adult project manager, King County Housing and Community Development
  • Michael Pergamit, senior fellow, Urban Institute
  • Laura Zeilinger, deputy director, United States Interagency Council on Homelessness
A light breakfast will be served at 9:30 a.m. The forum begins promptly at 10:00 a.m.
