Measuring Up: Youth-Level Outcomes and Measures for System Responses to Youth HomelessnessMarch 10, 2020
From The Youth Collaboratory in Partnership with Chapin Hall at the University of Chicago
If you’re puzzled on how to get started on measuring an end to youth homelessness, start with this. In the work to end youth homelessness, there is general agreement that young people need stable housing, permanent connections, education and/or employment, and an overall sense of well-being to succeed and thrive—and to make sure they never experience homelessness again. This is a starting point rather than an endpoint. We need to collectively continue to improve experience, evidence, and tools for youth outcomes measurement.
