Meaningful Partnerships to Support Youth at the Intersections of Homelessness & Gender-Based Violence
Recognizing and understanding the intersections of youth homelessness/housing insecurity and gender-based violence is critical to creating meaningful services and effective intervention and prevention strategies. While there is a great need for coordinated relationship violence intervention and prevention efforts for runaway and homeless youth, RHY and DV/SA service providers often work in silos and are unfamiliar with each other’s work. This webinar will examine the scope and unique characteristics of relationship violence amongst RHY, and will explore the why and the how of building and sustaining effective community collaborations to best serve youth at the intersections.
