Model State Strategies for Addressing the Needs of Homeless Youth

A new report by the American Bar Association presents model state laws, including supporting evidence and suggested legislative language, to address the various needs of homeless and runaway youth. The products of a recent conference involving policymakers, lawyers, service providers, advocates and formerly homeless youth, the model statutes address legal issues and definitions, access to services and supports, discrimination, and administrative procedures. The report provides targeted strategies, reinforced by persuasive evidence and specific language, to help vulnerable youth.
