2 years ago 2 years ago Published by Leave your thoughts
This infographic was created by the Homeless Hub.

HERE’S HOW THE CREATORS DESCRIBE THIS INFOGRAPHIC:

This infographic is original content from the Homeless Hub’s report, A Safe & Decent Place to Live: Towards a Housing First Framework for Youth. This report was the result of collaboration between the Homeless Hub, the National Learning Community on Youth Homelessness, and the Street Youth Planning Collaborative.

Rather than just asking whether Housing First works for youth (we know it does), the report examined how to adapt the core principles of Housing First to fit youth-centered programs.

This infographic demonstrates that Housing First is about more than simply housing youth. Good programs will ensure that youth also have access to various forms of support that are complimentary and meaningful and address the following needs:

  • Health & Wellbeing
  • Income & Education
  • Continuous Housing Supports
