Community-level strategic planning helps to ensure that local resources are being used as effectively as possible to provide safe places for homeless youth to stay and to quickly end their homelessness. This workshop will explore communities that have begun to take a systematic approach to ending youth homelessness. Targeting interventions, resource allocation, and desired system- and program-level outcomes will be among the topics discussed during this workshop.
