The Youth REACH MD Program
We are Expanding!
Youth REACH MD is preparing for an expanded demonstration count in the spring of 2017! As part of this effort, we are thrilled to welcome three additional Continuums of Care (CoCs): Carroll County, the Mid-Shore (Caroline, Dorchester, Kent, Talbot, & Queen Anne's Counties), and Southern Maryland (Charles, Calvert, & St. Mary's Counties).
We encourage you to continue to follow us on Facebook and Twitter for project updates. If you would like to get involved with the count in your area, visit our Pilot Areas page to contact your local Youth REACH MD representative. You can also learn more about Youth REACH MD on our What is Youth REACH MD? page, and review the results of our initial 2015 Youth REACH MD Survey in our Phase II Report on our Publications page.
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.
