Youth Count Readiness Assessment

Description

We recommend that all communities incorporate strategies to improve the representation of youth in their PiT Counts. At a minimum, communities should consult with youth with lived experience to seek input on methodological decisions such as mapping for the unsheltered count, as well as survey design and count promotion. Communities with a priority on youth homelessness or those with ample resources and expertise should consider additional strategies to enumerate and survey youth.
