Webinar: Supporting and Serving Youth who are Homeless

Psychologist giving a teen girl an agreement to sign before starting therapy.

Students and youth who are homeless face many challenges, including possibly having a disability. Additionally, numerous individuals in these situations may not have support from family or caring adults, suffer from malnutrition, poor health and trauma and lack access to quality transition services. This webinar was a part of the Y-TAC Fall 2018 Webinar Series – Engaging & Supporting Youth: Achieving Employment Success. This webinar provided information on supports and agencies working to break the cycle of poverty and homelessness. Participants learned how to support stability in the lives of students and youth who experience homelessness and to create caring atmospheres that generate positive outcomes.
