Nationally, an estimated 78 percent of young people who have experienced homelessness report that they have also had at least one interaction with law enforcement, while 44 percent have spent time in a jail or detention facility. Join us to learn about ways that communities can better support young people who find themselves at the intersections of youth homelessness and juvenile justice to ensure that youth do not have unnecessary contact with the juvenile justice system and that if they do come in contact with the justice system, that they exit to safe, stable, and secure housing. Participants will also gain a better understanding of ways that the newly reauthorized Juvenile Justice and Delinquency Prevention Act can help states ensure more stable housing options for youth in the juvenile justice system.
