The National Network for Youth (NN4Y) is dedicated to preventing and eradicating youth homelessness in America. We work in communities with youth who have experienced homelessness, service providers, and systems to help accelerate the community’s progress in ending homelessness and human trafficking among young people. Together, we envision a future in which all young people have a safe place to call home with endless opportunities to achieve their fullest potential.
Founded in 1976 by community-based youth service-providers committed to shaping public policy and community practices to keep youth in crisis out of juvenile detention and child welfare systems and instead receive comprehensive community-based services. NN4Y has evolved, but its core mission has remained unwavering—to transform systems so that no young person in America experiences homelessness.
