This workshop is directed at staff of agencies (social workers, case workers and advocates) working with youth. Youth homelessness is unacceptable; no young person should have to choose between school and the streets or between meaningful work and the street economy. No young person should be sleeping on a city bus or camping on a sidewalk. It is imperative that Cleveland, take action now, to put an end to this crisis. Our proposed statewide framework with governance and oversight functions will move the needle from decentralized and fragmented service system to a big-picture structure capable of replicating solutions across geographic regions and creating viable paths out of poverty for all young Clevelanders experiencing homelessness.
Participants will gain an understanding of the youth homelessness system in Cuyahoga County, including the housing and other needed resources available to young adults. Participants will learn how a racial and ethnic equity and inclusion lens is used in the youth homeless system, as well as strategies being applied to reduce disparities and work towards equity. Participants will increase knowledge of adolescent brain development and its impact on young people experiencing homelessness. Participants will gain skills to increase their ability to authentically engage young people and partner with them in systems change.
