Partners for Our Children

House: Funding is provided to conduct an analysis to identify characteristics of the homeless youth population from birth to age twenty one. The department must work with organizations that provide services to homeless youth and their families to identify best practices, barriers to accessing services, whether the services available meet the needs of this population, and whether there are additional services needed by this population. The department must submit an initial report to the appropriate committees of the legislature by December 31, 2015, and a final report by June 30, 2016.
