New release! Improving Federal Collaboration for Homeless Children and Youth

NHSA’s National Collaboration for Youth has released a joint policy brief on “Improving Federal Collaboration for Homeless Children and Youth” with the Campaign to End Child Homelessness, National Association for the Education of Homeless Children and Youth, and National Law Center on Homelessness & Poverty.

Over 1.5 million children and youth in America experience homelessness annually– one in 50 children each year.  Progress to combat child and youth homelessness in the U.S. can be made if federal agencies align their efforts, coordinating both programs and funding streams. 

Read the recommendations on how the federal government can enhance policy and program coordination to improve outcomes for homeless children and youth.
