Youth Homelessness Prevention & Housing Stabilization Strategy
The Youth Homelessness Prevention and Housing Stabilization Strategy collaborative, funded by the United Way, consists of 38 community partners from a wide variety of sectors who support young people. The strategy will support the community to develop a system of care that involves service coordination and system transformation for youth at risk of or experiencing homelessness in York Region through the development of a community-wide youth homelessness prevention and housing stabilization strategy. The Youth Strategy will be a collaborative approach to effectively preventing youth homelessness and shortening the amount of time a young person experiences homelessness, should it occur. It will involve bringing together the community, youth, agencies, stakeholders, businesses, government and those with lived experience, to develop a strategy that will be reflective of the voices of those it intends to serve.
