When working to end homelessness for a particular population it has proven effective to define a framework by enumerating the population, establishing a typology to assist with scaling of resources, and then to measure progress. While there are great programs doing work with youth, an overall framework has not previously been defined. This webinar will provide an examination of data and past typologies of homeless youth, estimates of the number of homeless youth across a new typology, and give a summary of promising strategies to more effectively end youth homelessness.

The webinar features Deborah Shore, Executive Director and Founder of Sasha Bruce Youthwork and chair of the National Network for Youth; Paul Toro, Wayne State University; and Samantha Batko and Andre Wade, Program and Policy Analysts at the Alliance.
