Maryland Youth Homelessness Symposium
May 1 & 2, 2019
At the Westin Annapolis, 100 Westgate Circle, Annapolis, MD 21401
Join us at the Symposium to work together to end and prevent youth homelessness in Maryland!
The Maryland Youth Homelessness Symposium is a statewide event sponsored by the Maryland Department of Housing and Community Development to provide a space for all to collaborate towards ending and preventing youth homelessness in Maryland. The Symposium is designed to bring together youth, service providers, local and state government agencies, funders, policymakers, advocates and anyone who wants to learn more about how we can work together to address youth homelessness. The agenda will include sessions and workshops on known best practices, opportunities for cross-collaboration and community planning, and the chance to hear from youth themselves on what we can do to better to support them.
Maryland has made it a priority to address youth homelessness and work towards ending and preventing it within the State, aligning with the U.S. Interagency Council on Homelessness' goal to end youth homelessness by 2020. The Symposium is informed by the work of Youth REACH MD – that a staggering number of youth are experiencing homelessness across all parts of Maryland and that the supports they need are lacking. Together, we are working to build collaboration across sectors by developing, sharing, and expanding best practices across the State.
Stay tuned for more information.
