The Coalition is proud to be a lead collaborator once again with the Massachusetts Commission on Unaccompanied Homeless Youth for the 7th annual Massachusetts Youth Count. The Massachusetts Youth Count mobilizes youth, young adults, youth providers funded by the Executive Office of Health and Human Services, Continua of Care, schools, and other community partners 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, which had been scheduled for Monday, April 13th - Sunday, May 17th, has been postponed due to the coronavirus outbreak. Please stay tuned for updates and next steps. We have removed the outreach links and flyers that were on this page for now to decrease any confusion.
