Massachusetts Youth Count 2016
May 2, 2016 

Today's the day! The 3rd annual Massachusetts Youth Count is now underway to better understand the housing and service needs of unaccompanied youth and young adults under the age of 25. Findings from this survey will continue to inform state policies and funding allocations so that Massachusetts can better meet the needs of young people who are experiencing homelessness and housing instability, outside the care of a parent or guardian.

Youth Count 2016 will run until the end of the day on Sunday, May 15th.

Please share these links with young people you know who are under 25 and who have experienced housing instability.

The online survey in English and Spanish is here.
