5.5 Housing and Service Interventions for Youth and Young Parents: Successful Models

Speaker: Heather Beackel

For unaccompanied youth and young parents who cannot be reunified with their families or quickly re-housed independently, longer-term housing interventions may be necessary. This workshop will examine transitional housing models currently being utilized to serve youth and young parents, including congregate facilities and scattered-site units, as well as methods of targeting and minimizing involuntary exits.
