Homelessness is a devastating experience that has a significant impact on well-being and functioning, increased awareness and solutions supporting long-term housing stability for LGBT youth are critical.
McKinney-Vento liaisons, teachers, guidance counselors and providers working with youth must have an understanding of the challenges these students face – and the best ways to meet students’ needs.
The goal is to improve the lives of families experiencing domestic violence by equipping providers with practical knowledge of homelessness and its intersection with domestic violence.
In partnership with the federal Office of Violence Against Women, The National Center on Family Homelessness has created a toolkit that focuses on integrating domestic violence and homeless service systems.
