General Session 3: Specialized Services for Homeless Youth (LGBT, Human Trafficking, Pregnant and Parenting, etc.)

How are homeless youth programs welcoming, identifying and providing services to the very diverse population of young people accessing their services and housing? What can you do to ensure that you are providing the services each young person needs to stabilize and thrive?  You will learn about innovative and effective ways to serve youth who are: LGBT, juvenile justice-involved, pregnant and parenting, and survivors of human trafficking.

Federal Agency Roundtable

Our objective for the discussion is to have every federal agency commit to taking at least one action during 2014 and beyond to increase access to safety and youth-appropriate services for America’s runaway and homeless youth. The Roundtable will consist of a facilitator-led discussion around creating a “system to end youth homelessness” by using NN4Y’s framework as a “frame” for a “system.” Attendees will have significant takeaways from this session and also hear from several federal agencies. Last year’s Roundtable featured representatives from federal agencies including U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD), U.S. Department of Health and Human Services (HHS), the U.S. Department of Education (ED), U.S. Department of Labor (DOL), and U.S. Interagency Council on Homelessness (USICH).
