Data is used to tell an under-told story of the numbers, needs, and experiences of homeless youth. Communities can improve data by conducting targeted youth counts and using Homeless Management Information Systems. Attendees will be provided with emerging practices in conducting youth counts and ways that youth-serving providers can benefit from using HMIS. Also discussed will be new ways to report outcomes.
