WASHINGTON, DC – On March 19 thru March 20, the National Network for Youth (NN4Y) will convene its second annual National Summit on Youth Homelessness in Washington, DC. This comes at a point in time when there is considerable national and federal interest in prioritizing youth-appropriate policies and increasing commonsense investment in homeless youth services.
