U.S. Department of Health and Human Services Seeks Research on Family Intervention Strategies for Homeless Youth

November 20, 2015

The U.S. Department of Health and Human Services' Office of the Assistant Secretary for Planning and Evaluation seeks to identify programs to prevent youth from becoming homeless, reunify homeless youth with their families, and reconnect youth with their families when reunification is not appropriate. The Urban Institute and Child Trends are conducting the study and are seeking submissions for a research project on evidence-based family intervention strategies for youth experiencing or at risk of homelessness. This study will examine interventions used in systems outside of Runaway and Homeless Youth programs, e.g., child welfare, mental health, substance abuse, and justice. Submissions can be published or unpublished and should focus on:

  • Relationships with family and family members.
  • Youth between ages 12 and 24.
  • Youth who are at risk of or experiencing homelessness.
  • Risk factors for homelessness.

For more information on this project:  

  • Email questions to Brandon Stratford.
  • Email questions about the project to Mike Pergamit.

Email submissions to Ann Schindler.

The deadline for submissions is November 27, 2015.
