A Way Home America, the national alliance to end homelessness, recently selected Cleveland, Austin and Los Angeles to participate in 100-Day Challenges with the Rapid Results Institute. The idea for each city is use rapid innovation to accelerate our local work toward ending youth homelessness, and to then share what we learn throughout that process to inform national dialogue, learning and policy to prevent and end youth homelessness.
The July 25 national announcement of this exciting endeavor has been covered widely, including:
