Youth Work at the Coalition

The Coalition is currently working towards making youth homelessness a rare and temporary occurrence. We are dedicated to centering and empowering the voices of youth and young adults with lived experience of housing instability and homelessness. The Youth Action Board's expertise informs our work towards a more equitable, safe, and human centered housing system.
