This webinar focuses on strategies used by three communities - Washington, DC, San Jose, CA, and southern Nevada - to assess the prevalence of youth homelessness. The webinar provided guidance on how youth providers, advocates, and others can partner with Continuums of Care (CoCs) to ensure a successful youth-inclusive Point-In-Time (PIT) count in 2013. Speakers stressed the importance of conducting an accurate PIT count to promote social policies that will end youth homelessness. Speakers also discussed how to involve youth in planning and implementing the PIT count.
The National Alliance to End Homelessness is a nonpartisan, non profit organization dedicated to solving the problem of homelessness and preventing its continued growth.
