It is great that you are interested in joining the movement to end youth homelessness. There are many different ways for you to get involved.
If there is a program in your area, they are always looking for volunteers. Also, donations are needed. Contact your local homeless youth program today to find out what they need!
A list of current Runaway and Homeless Youth Act (RHYA) funded programs can be found here: acf.hhs.gov/programs/fysb/grants/fysb-grantees. However, because these federal resources are very limited, this map does not depict every program available to homeless youth in America so be sure to search locally to find a program for you to support. Programs do exist in rural, suburban and urban communities—however, many communities do not have any programs.
The best way to find local contact information is to contact the McKinney-Vento State Coordinator at center.serve.org/nche/states/state_resources.php. The Director can tell you what help and donations are needed. They will be so grateful that you called and appreciate any help and resources that you can provide.
We would love to keep you up-to-date with our work, events, action alerts, and opportunities to get involved.
You can learn about our current campaigns here.
Any support that you can provide will help us continue to raise awareness, educate policymakers and advocate for increased resources for homeless youth. You can make a one time donation or sign-up to make a monthly donation. For more details, visit our donation page.
