Communities have been involved in the groundbreaking Youth Homelessness Demonstration Program (YHDP) for a couple of years now, and communities all over the country can start improving their own responses to youth homelessness based on the lessons innovative YHDP sites have learned. This interactive session will cover all aspects of YHDP, including developing coordinated community plans, authentically collaborating with young people, building partnerships with other youth-serving systems, and ramping up housing assistance, among others.
