National Network for Youth to Host First National Summit on Youth Homelessness

WASHINGTON, DC – On March 24 thru March 25, the National Network for Youth (NN4Y) will convene its first National Summit on Youth Homelessness in Washington, DC. This comes at a point in time when there is considerable national and federal interest in prioritizing youth-appropriate policies and increasing commonsense investment in homeless youth services. In response, the Network organized this two-day event to highlight the urgent and unique needs of homeless youth in America and to outline the federal response required to address these needs. Former runaway and homeless youth, services providers, advocates, federal workers and Congresspersons from across the United States will attend and participate in this Summit.
