A new initiative in the movement to prevent and end youth homelessness seeks three communities to join an inaugural 100-day challenge. A Way Home America launched the challenge on June 3 of this year to build on the federal strategic plan to prevent and end homelessness. That nationwide blueprint, published by the United States Interagency Council on Homelessness, includes a federal goal to end youth homelessness in 2020.

A Way Home America is currently accepting applications from communities that wish to set and pursue bold goals that help youth facing homelessness, according to a blog post penned by Director Megan Gibbard. Selected participants will receive hands-on technical assistance and support from the initiative in partnership with the Rapid Results Institute, a nonprofit organization that establishes similar 100-day challenges to solve social issues across the globe.

Challenge participants will also receive travel funds to attend required workshops. Funding for additional services will not be provided.

Learn more about A Way Home America and the 100-day challenge. Interested organizations must complete the required form by June 20.
