Help Homeless Children and Youth - No Matter Where They Sleep
Ask Your U.S. Representative to Cosponsor HR 2001, the Homeless Children and Youth Act
Millions of homeless children and youth are shut out of HUD’s homeless assistance programs because they do not meet HUD’s restrictive definition of homelessness.
While these children and youth are considered homeless by other federal agencies, they aren’t even eligible to be assessed for HUD homeless assistance – no matter how vulnerable they are.
The Homeless Children and Youth Act, HR 2001, fixes this problem. It allows homeless children and youth to be seen and served by aligning federal definitions of homelessness for children and youth, streamlining assistance, leveraging resources, and bringing greater visibility to the reality of family and youth homelessness.
