“Preventing Youth Homelessness: What You Can Do”

Every year, 1 in 30 youth ages 13-17 experience homelessness. For young adults ages 18-25, the number is even higher: 1 in 10. What can YOU do to help keep youth safe and off the streets? Join Jackson Street staff on Tuesday, May 28th at the Albany Public Library to find out.

Learn about issues impacting local youth, trauma-informed care, prevention strategies, and ways YOU can help end youth homelessness. It takes a caring community to keep youth safe. Thank you for being a part of it!
