National initiative to end youth homelessness selects Cleveland, Austin and Los Angeles to launch 100-Day Challenges

Following a competitive nationwide search, A Way Home America announced on July 25th that Cleveland, Austin and Los Angeles will each launch a 100-Day Challenge to advance efforts to end youth homelessness. Through the challenges, A Way Home America seeks to support and accelerate the local work of the selected communities and to inform national dialogue, learning and policy to prevent and end youth homelessness. The three communities will receive support from the Rapid Results Institute to drive toward ambitious goals over 100 days, starting September 7th.

Cleveland/Cuyahoga County’s 100-Day Challenge will be coordinated by A Place 4 Me, a cross-sector initiative of more than 50 public and private agencies. The initiative has developed a strategic plan to prevent and end youth homelessness that prioritizes youth transitioning from foster care, a population particularly vulnerable to housing instability. A Place 4 Me is a collaboration led by the YWCA Greater Cleveland; Cuyahoga County Department of Health and Human Services, including the Division of Children and Family Services and the Office of Homeless Services; FrontLine Service; the Annie E. Casey Foundation’s Jim Casey Youth Opportunities Initiative; and the Sisters of Charity Foundation of Cleveland, which has provided technical assistance and catalyzed funding partnership to support this initiative.
