HUD Funded Project to End Youth Homelessness in Our Community
Strategies to End Homelessness, in partnership with Lighthouse Youth & Family Services and many community partners, is proud to present KEYS to a Future Without Youth Homelessness, our community plan to end youth homelessness that was approved by the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development on January 5, 2018. Lighthouse is the lead agency on the project.
Cincinnati/Hamilton County is one of 10 communities selected to participate in the HUD-funded Youth Homelessness Demonstration Program (YHDP), with a goal of developing and implementing an innovative plan to end youth homelessness by 2020. We’re using our award of $3.8 million to fund strategies to end homelessness among the 18-to-24-year-old population.
This final plan will become a road map to the work we must do in order to end youth homelessness. Ending youth homelessness is not an easy task, but it is possible.
