#NCFYtalk Recap: Friends Helping Friends to End Youth Homelessness
Every November, the National Clearinghouse on Families and Youth (NCFY) and the National Runaway Safeline (NRS) observe National Runaway Prevention Month as part of the Family and Youth Services Bureau's efforts to end youth homelessness. On December 7, 2016, NCFY and NRS teamed up in a Twitter chat to discuss those efforts and to wrap up National Runaway Prevention Month.
Here are some highlights of the chat. You can view the entire conversation by searching #NCFYtalk on Twitter.
