Many youth remain in contact with their families when they are out of the home. Family intervention provides an opportunity to engage, connect, and reunify young people with caring adults. Presenters will discuss how family intervention can create housing destinations and decrease negative behaviors. The discussion will also focus on the need to provide family intervention to all youth regardless of age, sexual orientation, or gender identity.
