Meaningful Partnerships to Support Youth at the Intersections of Homelessness and Gender-Based Violence

Event Dates

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, runaway/homeless youth and domestic violence/sexual assault 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 runaway/homeless youth, and will explore the why and the how of building and sustaining effective community collaborations to best serve youth at the intersections.
