Our Plan


As part of Polk County's Youth Homelessness Demonstration Program, community stakeholders and youth engaged in a comprehensive planning process to prevent and end youth homelessness. Months of planning and partnership have resulted in Polk County's Coordinated Community Plan, a document that outlines our community's strategy to support young people's strengths and needs as they secure safe stable housing.
