HERE’S HOW THE AUTHORS DESCRIBE THIS REPORT:

On the surface, youth homelessness seems to be an intractable problem. In many Canadian cities, the sight of young people panhandling or sleeping in parks may be unsettling, but by 2014 it probably doesn’t shock most people. It seems that we have been dealing with this problem for a very long time; because of its persistence the solutions to youth homelessness can appear elusive.

The good news is that we do not have to start from scratch. There is considerable knowledge to be drawn from research and innovations in Canada and international contexts that point the way. The purpose of this report is to highlight such innovation, to draw from research to outline a framework for addressing youth homelessness and to identify evidence based practices that can be adapted to local contexts.
