Youth Homeless Planning

In April 2017, Iowa Homeless Youth Centers (IHYC) was awarded funding from Mid-Iowa Health Foundation to create a plan to end and prevent youth homelessness in Polk County. IHYC subcontracted with the Youth Policy Institute of Iowa (YPII) to lead the planning process. Over the next several months, in collaboration with numerous community stakeholders, YPII will be convening partners, analyzing data, researching best practices, identifying strategies, and drafting the community plan to be completed by the end of 2017.
