“….To meet all the physical, developmental, and social needs of youth experiencing homelessness, we must design and implement a unified, collaborative response in every community.

Housing for youth that is not time-limited but offers supportive services and the opportunity for youth to move towards independence at their own pace can be tailored specifically for the highest-need youth: those with intense medical, mental health, and/or substance use disorders.”
