The California Homeless Youth Project is Back!
The HYP is pleased to announce we've received another two-year grant from The California Wellness Foundation beginning in October 2011. We're off to a busy start as we help raise awareness of California's second annual Runaway and Homeless Youth Month and look forward to seeing the Capitol turn green on November 12th for an event organized by the California Coalition for Youth to raise awareness and show support for homeless youth. We hope to see you there!
Ending Youth Homelessness in California
At the request of State Senator Carol Liu, The HYP is currently partnering with the California Coalition for Youth to create a statewide action plan to prevent and end youth homelessness in California. In late October, HYP Project Director Ginny Puddefoot spoke alongside Jennifer Ho, Deputy Director of the United States Interagency Council on Homelessness; Heather Dearing, Executive Director of the California Coalition for Youth; and Peter LaValle, former Director of Redwood Community Action Agency, at a conference in San Francisco in which the Preliminary State Action Steps to Address Youth Homelessness was discussed. This is a work in progress and we look forward to refining and prioritizing these Action Steps through discussions with our partners from around the state in the months ahead.
