Youth Homelessness

Depression men in the tunnel

The Coalition for the Homeless reports over half a million people were homeless on a single night in 2018 with 17 percent of New Yorkers accounting for the country’s overall homeless population. Homelessness across the state has increased by 40 percent since 2010 that also impacts youth homelessness.

Current Initiative

Work with the Homeless Alliance of WNY and other community agencies and organizations to develop a coordinate community plan required by the US Department of Housing and Urban Development to utilize project funding for the Youth Homelessness Demonstration Program (YHDP) in effort to reduce the number of youth in the area experiencing homelessness.

The Homeless Alliance of WNY, one of 23 local communities, received a $3.5 million grant through the program.
