Philly Homes 4 Youth Coalition
The goal of the Philly Homes 4 Youth coalition is to create a sustainable infrastructure in Philadelphia where every young adult experiencing housing instability can be connected to a safe and stable place to stay and receive the supportive services they need to sustain long-term housing stability, and to implement prevention strategies to reduce the number of young people entering the homeless services system. The VISTA will coordinate and lead, along with other youth already participating in the Coalition, an effort to expand the number of youths with lived experience of homelessness in Coalition planning activities.
