Youth Economic Justice and Housing Coalition

Who We Are

The Youth Economic Justice and Housing Coalition works to prevent and eradicate youth and family homelessness in the District of Columbia. We advocate for funding, policies, and programs that prevent youth homelessness and improve the outcomes and experiences of youth experiencing homelessness from birth to early adulthood.
