Preventing and Ending Youth Homelessness

Welcome to our Kim Wilson Housing library. This library collection contains research studies, reports and books related to housing vulnerable populations. Come back often as we update the collection on a regular basis. 

    A Coordinated Community Response


    In Opening Doors: Federal Strategic Plan to Prevent and End Homelessness, the U.S. Interagency Council on Homelessness set a national goal to prevent and end youth homelessness in 2020. To get there, it will take government, nonprofits, business, and philanthropy to make sure every community has the capacity to achieve the goal.
    Our understanding of the scope and dynamics of youth homelessness is growing. While we continue to learn
    more every day, we must act now to build the comprehensive and coordinated response that young people
    need to end their homelessness forever.

    This document provides a preliminary vision for such a response. It draws upon what we know
    works to end homelessness for other populations, along with strategies that support the unique
    needs of unaccompanied youth and young adults under 25.
