Implementing Change: Addressing the Intersections of Juvenile Justice and Youth Homelessness for Young Adults


Alicia Woodsby
Partnership for Strong Communities

Abstract

Young adults ages 18-24 require specific, targeted services and interventions from the juvenile justice and homelessness service providers with whom they interact if they are to achieve successful outcomes and avoid long term harms. This resource is intended to assist policymakers, practitioners, and other stakeholders in applying an earlier report, “Addressing the Intersections of Juvenile Justice Involvement and Youth Homelessness: Principles for Change.” (Principles for Change or Principles) in their work with and on behalf of young people in this age group who are under the jurisdiction of the juvenile justice system. Specifically, this tool was developed to help communities: Prevent homelessness among juvenile justice-involved young adults; and decrease the likelihood that young adults experiencing homelessness become involved with the juvenile justice system.
