Philly Homes 4 Youth VISTA
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. In order to affect real change, the coalition advocates for policy and systems change in four key areas: prevention of youth homelessness, coordination of entry and assessment, creation of a continuum of housing services, and provision of culturally-appropriate support services, including child welfare and behavioral health services. In each area, the Coalition has had several key accomplishments since the coalition’s founding. Turning Points for Children is requesting one VISTA to provide logistical and administrative support to the Coalition, and to lead, along with other youth already participating in the Coalition, an effort to expand the number of youth with lived experience of homelessness in Coalition planning activities.
