Massachusetts Youth Count 2018

Massachusetts Youth Count 2018

Last updated February 14, 2018

The Coalition is proud to be a lead collaborator once again with the Massachusetts Commission on Unaccompanied Homeless Youth for the 5th annual Massachusetts Youth Count. The Massachusetts Youth Count mobilizes youth, young adults, Continua of Care, and youth providers to survey young people under the age of 25 from all across the Commonwealth who are experiencing homelessness and housing instability. The insights and data gathered from the survey process are used to influence advocacy and programming to address youth and young adult homelessness.

This year's Youth Count will take place from Monday, April 23rd - Sunday, May 13th. The paper and online survey tools will be posted here when they become available. An overview of the Youth Count is here (PDF).

Youth Count partners are invited to join the Commission for this year's Youth Count conference, to be held on Thursday, February 15th at the College of the Holy Cross. Click on the image below to link to the registration page. The conference agenda is here (PDF).
