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.

Volunteer at or Donate to a Local Homeless Youth Program

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.

Support Your Local Schools McKinney-Vento Program

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.
