About this training

Summary
The COVID-19 pandemic has exacerbated existing challenges and created new ones for RHY grantees and the young people they support. In this session, the presenters will discuss emerging evidence about the effects and circumstances of the pandemic related to youth homelessness. Participants will have an opportunity to share with each other and provide input into potential training and technical assistance, assessments, and resources warranting further exploration by RHYTTAC. What we learn through this pandemic, and our response, has important potential to inform preparation for future public health crises and other disasters. 

Objectives 
Participants will: 

  • Gain knowledge and access resources on the emerging evidence on the pandemic related to youth homelessness. 
  • Contribute to an understanding of the gap between the evidence and the reality of service provision in communities. 
  • Provide input regarding training and technical assistance needs related to and beyond the pandemic context and deeper assessments. 
  • Learn about the development of a framework for preparing for future public health crises and other disasters.
