CHIP is developing a strategy to provide long-term preventative solutions to youth homelessness through improved housing and youth-centered transition services.
The Development Phase of this Youth Initiative will include the following action items:
The Acquisition or Rehabilitation Phase will identify new housing units, form partnerships among housing and service providers, and secure appropriate on-site staff.
The Expansion Phase will continue program evaluation and build ongoing community awareness and partnerships. The goal is to create up to 30 housing units with supportive services by the end of 2011 and expand those units as much as three times by the end of 2013.

The Youth Initiative strategy is being developed with support from the Glick Fund, a CIFC Fund.
