Rising to the Challenge: Ending Youth and Young Adults Homelessness in the city, a community planning process centered around preventing and hopefully ending homelessness among unaccompanied people, has been launched by members of the City of Boston’s Youth Action Board.

The Board is the City’s consumer advisory group of youth and young adults who have current or former experience with homelessness or housing instability.

“Our city is taking the critical first steps in ending homelessness,” Mayor Martin Walsh said. “Board members and their peers have important stories to tell us and will contribute so much to the creation of this plan.”

Rising to the Challenge gathered community partners to develop and launch the first draft of this comprehensive plan that is geared to put youth on pathways toward stable housing.
