USICH Framework to End Youth Homelessness: A Resource Text for Dialogue and Action

On February 21, 2013, the United States Interagency Council on Homelessness (USICH) released the USICH Framework to End Youth Homelessness: A Resource Text for Dialogue and Action. The framework builds on the 2012 amendment to Opening Doors and outlines strategies for meeting the goal set forth in that amendment of ending youth homelessness by 2020. In this new framework, USICH emphasizes the need for better data on the population of youth experiencing homelessness and improved capacity for programs serving that population. Also included in the framework is a preliminary intervention model that accounts for risk factors and focuses on addressing high-risk populations such as youth involved with the foster care and juvenile justice systems.
