Youth Homelessness Demonstration Project
In 2021, Hennepin County was selected as a Youth Homelessness Demonstration Program (YHDP). The program is a federal initiative to support selected communities as they develop and implement a coordinated community approach to preventing and ending youth homelessness.
This project expands on and advances the work our community is already doing to combat homelessness. In Hennepin County, we help youth experiencing homelessness by ensuring homelessness is rare, brief and non-recurring.
