1.6 Improving Local Data on Youth Homelessness

To date, there are very limited data on the scope and needs of unaccompanied homeless children and youth. In 2013, for the first time, communities were mandated to differentiate unaccompanied youth and children in point-in-time (PIT) counts. Since then, some promising practices in conducting youth PIT counts have emerged. This workshop will focus on strategies for improving PIT counts of youth, including incorporating surveys into the count.
