One of the challenges in addressing youth homelessness is knowing how many youth and young adults are experiencing homelessness and what their experiences are like. Experts agree there is a need for a coordinated and consistent approach to effectively enumerate and better understand this population.
Youth REACH MD (Reach out, Engage, Assist, & Count to end Homelessness) is an effort to begin to address this problem in Maryland by obtaining accurate, detailed information on the number, characteristics, and needs of unaccompanied homeless youth to aid in ending and preventing youth homelessness.
