The Youth Work Group is in the process of finalizing the Youth Coordinated Assistance and Housing Placement (CAHP) manual. This is one of a series of meetings that have been scheduled to support this effort and obtain feedback from the Youth Work Group members and stakeholders.
The Youth Work Group 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 Work Group 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 work group is the body that will coordinate the implementation of comprehensive programming to support runaway youth and families and future work around prevention programming.
