National Partnership to End Youth Homelessness
The National Partnership to End Youth Homelessness1 has developed the following checklist as a guide to help communities identify the minimum requirements for an effective permanent solution to prevent and end youth homelessness. The essentials are based on the National Alliance to End Homelessness Ten Essentials for Ending Homelessness in Your Community and the Ten Year Plan to End Homelessness, which draws from over twenty years of research and experience with communities around the country. The essentials are slightly modified to respond to the unique housing and service needs of homeless youth. No essential is more important than another. All require participation from every sector of the community.
