On September 4, 2019, A Way Home America (AWHA) announced San Francisco as a selected community of its Grand Challenge to end youth homelessness at the True Colors United Impact Summit in Washington, D.C.
The Grand Challenge aims to end homelessness for LGBTQ+ youth and youth of color, and pave the way to eventually ending housing insecurity and homelessness for all young people.
Over the next two years, AWHA will support San Francisco and nine other chosen communities in developing targeted strategies to address the problem in their areas.
As a result of this grant, youth agencies across San Francisco, including Huckleberry Youth Programs, will be examining practices and service delivery to ensure that there is a focus on equity and inclusion for youth of color and LGBTQ youth. Pictured: Huckleberry House
