5.9 Improving Point-in-Time Counts for Youth

The January 2013 point-in-time count was the first time that HUD asked communities to differentiate unaccompanied children and unaccompanied youth under the age of 25. Nationwide fewer than 50,000 unaccompanied homeless children and youth were counted and many Continuums of Care, including in some major cities, counted zero unaccompanied children and youth. This workshop will focus on how communities can do a better job of capturing unaccompanied children and youth in their point in time counts with a focus on community planning and volunteer training leading up to the January 2015 point-in-time counts.
