Please Take This Survey About Youth Homelessness 

 

Many of us don’t fit the stereotypes of people experiencing homelessness, but could use support with housing and resources.

Massachusetts is trying to better understand and meet the needs of youth and young adults who experience housing instability & homelessness.

 

If you are under 25, take the confidential 2021 Youth Count survey between April 12th- May 24th.

 

Data from this survey will impact funding & services for young adults experiencing housing instability.
