It’s the goal of any program serving at-risk or homeless youth: get young people off the streets and into a safe place of their own. But obstacles are always there, from regional and demographic challenges to a lack of available, affordable housing.
This edition of NCFY Reports addresses those challenges. We learn how one city has brought housing into easier reach thanks to a supercharged network of support. We also look at agencies’ strategies for better meeting the housing needs of rural and lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, and questioning (LGBTQ) young people.
