King County Participates in Voices of Youth Count

VOYC

King County is one of 22 national regions selected to participate in Voices of Youth Count, an innovative research effort linking evidence and action to end youth homelessness. The project includes a point-in-time count on June 30. Partners are encouraged to invited unstably housed and homeless youth ages 13-25 to participate in a short survey and youth will receive a $5 gift card for their time. Drop-in “Come and Be Counted” locations for the survey are here, and youth will also be counted by street outreach teams, at shelters, and at transitional housing programs. The Voices of Youth Count is a two-year project that includes local policy and fiscal scans, youth focus groups, data review, the point-in-time count and more. Initial findings of the project will be available in late 2016.
