2.7 Intensive Service Models for Families and Youth

Speaker: Erin Maguire

Some families and youth benefit from more intensive and long-lasting supportive services to help them successfully transition out of homelessness and achieve housing stability. This workshop will focus on evidence-based service models, including Critical Time Intervention (CTI) and “wrap around”, and how homeless service providers are adapting these service models to get better outcomes for homeless and at-risk families and young adults.
