The Youth Committee of the Interagency Council on Homelessness is focused on implementing Solid Foundations DC: Comprehensive Plan to End Youth Homelessness. Comprised of advocates, community providers and implementing agencies, the Committee developed the data-driven plan based on annual youth census outcomes and the data captured by the coordinated entry system for unaccompanied youth. A number of initiatives underway to implement Solid Foundations DC include comprehensive street outreach programs, and a pilot transitional housing programs for specific populations of focus.
Additionally, this Committee is the body that will coordinate the implementation of comprehensive programming to support runaway youth and families and future work around prevention programming.
