The United States Interagency Council on Homelessness (USICH) is hosting the webinar, Non-Time Limited Housing for Youth, on Thursday, August 13, 2015 from 1:00 - 2:15 PM EDT. In addition to leaders from USICH and the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD), community presenters from Portland, Maine, and New York City will highlight two models of non-time limited housing for youth, detailing how those programs were developed and financed, what the programs offer to youth, as well as outcomes and challenges.
As communities work to coordinate a comprehensive approach to ending youth homelessness by 2020, creating and financing housing opportunities for youth unable to return to families can be a challenge. Some communities are beginning to find success with housing for youth that does not include traditional time-limits or programmatic requirements. Many of these programs also provide trauma-informed services that address the physical, socio-emotional, intellectual, and life skills development of youth on a pathway to independence.
