1.1 A Blueprint for Ending Youth Homelessness
How do we end youth homelessness? This workshop will summarize research and examine an emerging typology that can be used to inform and appropriately scale interventions to end youth homelessness. Presenters will describe strategies that are working to help young people reconnect with family and other caring adults when appropriate, and prepare to transition successfully to independent living with housing and supportive services.

Samantha Batko, National Alliance to End Homelessness, Washington, DC
Paul Toro, Wayne State University, Detroit, MI
Katie Hong, Raikes Foundation, Seattle, WA
Eric Rice, USC School of Social Work, Los Angeles, CA
