Ending youth homelessness requires partnership and coordinated efforts in communities and at every level of government. USICH's Federal Framework to End Youth Homelessness is a resource text for dialogue and action toward ending youth homelessness together.
The framework includes a Preliminary Intervention Model, designed to help communities identify the systems and capacity necessary to meet the needs of all youth experiencing homelessness. On February 13, 2014 at 3:00 p.m. ET, please join the U.S. Interagency Council on Homelessness (USICH) and the Departments of Health and Human Services (HHS), Housing and Urban Development (HUD), and Education (ED) for a webinar on the Preliminary Intervention Model.
This Model was developed with two, complementary commitments:
- Using the best available scientific evidence from research involving youth experiencing homelessness to guide the contents of the model
- Incorporating a risk and protective factors perspective into understanding the diversity of youth experiencing homelessness
The Model targets specific changes in the life of a young person experiencing homelessness that increase the likelihood of getting the youth to positive core outcomes. Learn more about the intervention model and how we can work together to end youth homelessness.
Register for the Preliminary Intervention Model Webinar on Thursday, February 13 at 3:00pm ET.
