The Department of Housing and Community Development, Delegate Mary Washington, the University of Maryland School of Social Work, and the rest of the Youth REACH MD Coalition would like to sincerely thank all those continuing to support this effort to reach out, engage, and assist to end homelessness for youth in Maryland!
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.
