HERE’S HOW THE AUTHORS DESCRIBE THIS REPORT:

Alberta’s current response to youth homelessness places much of the emphasis on the emergency response. While emergency services are important and necessary, we cannot rely on these as the ‘system’ to deal with youth homelessness. The strategies presented in the Youth Plan suggest a new way to address youth homelessness that builds on the three existing components: prevention/emergency services/housing and supports – but shifts the emphasis. Prevention and housing and supports become a greater priority. Emergency services are provided, with support, to facilitate this shift in Alberta’s response.
