A new report from a coalition of juvenile justice organizations is intended to help communities better serve people 18 to 24 who are involved in the juvenile justice system and in danger of becoming homeless.

It comes a year after a report from the Coalition for Juvenile Justice that looked into the intersection between juvenile justice and homelessness for youth under 18.

This report focuses more on jurisdictions raising their age” of criminal responsibility, said report author Lisa Pilnik, co-founder and director of Child & Family Policy Associates and senior advisor of the Coalition for Juvenile Justice. “Transition and reentry planning are different if you’re talking about a 15-year-old [exiting the juvenile justice system and] going to return to their family verses a 19-year-old who isn’t.”
