New Services For Youth

New Services For Youth

Community Shelter Board has been awarded a demonstration grant from the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development intended to dramatically reduce homelessness among youth, age 24 and younger.

HUD requires a four-month planning process that includes a needs assessment and development of a comprehensive, coordinated, community-wide response to youth homelessness for a variety of new housing and service options. The plan is due to HUD in November 2018.

A committee of stakeholders is collaborating to develop the plan, including representatives from local government, youth service providers, homeless service providers, The Columbus Foundation, and young people who have experienced homelessness. Once the new plan for youth is approved by HUD, funding allocations will be made to implement new project models and services for youth. Implementation of new projects is anticipated to begin during the second half of 2019.
