Spotlight on Youth - How Washington State are working to end youth homeless

Updated: Jul 26

A Way Home Washington is a statewide movement to prevent and end youth and young adult homelessness, with a focus on prioritising young people of colour and LGBTQ+ young people who experience homelessness at higher rates than their white, straight, cisgender peers.

They provide strategic statewide support and intensive support in communities participating in the flagship program, the Anchor Communities Initiative (ACI), to inform, grow, and sustain change efforts. Working together with Washington’s Office of Homeless Youth, they are building a system that is data-informed, performance-based, equity-driven and holds young people and families at the centre.

Join WAAEH and YACWA for a youth sector update and listen in as they chat to Ashley Barnes-Cocke, Ed. M, (they/them), the Project Director of ACI at A Way Home Washington. Ashley will be sharing learnings around ending youth homelessness in Washington State, their focus on prevention and the usefulness of a diversion fund.

Date: Friday, 5 August | 10:00am - 11:00am (Perth WST).
