The toolkit is designed as a resource for organizations and/or individuals considering or already leading community efforts to develop strategic responses to youth homelessness. Most likely, you are working in or with non-profit, government, lived experience and private sector stakeholders to explore your next steps. This toolkit will help you map out what needs to be done to get you started, across the finish line and beyond.

This toolkit:

  • Outlines the key elements of a systems approach to prevent, reduce and end youth homelessness using best and promising practices,
  • Provides guidance to local communities on a step-by-step approach to develop plans that advance solutions to end youth homelessness,
  • Highlights Canadian examples of innovation and locally developed resources to enhance knowledge exchange advancing the national movement and
  • Is not intended to reinvent the wheel; where resources are readily available it points the reader to these as appropriate and draws on existing research and materials throughout.
