4.3 Child Welfare's Response to End Youth Homelessness
Child welfare and homelessness have long been intertwined. Many youth enter the child welfare system simply because the family is homeless. Other youth exit child welfare and only to become homeless. This workshop will focus on strategies, programs, and practices – including the Fostering Connections Act, use of Chaffee dollars, and the National Youth in Transition Database (NYTD) – to decrease the risk of homelessness for youth exiting child welfare, and changing the child welfare systems’ response to homelessness.
