Guide to the 2017 CT Youth Count!
In 2015, Connecticut conducted the first statewide count of homeless youth. The count was a great success, helping to identify 3,000 homeless and unstably housed youth, many of whom likely would never have entered homeless shelters.
Building on that success, CT will hold a second Youth Count in January, 2017. Through close collaboration between homeless services, youth agencies, and other stakeholders in the community we hope to hold a more comprehensive count, which will give an accurate scope of the magnitude, needs, and demographics of homeless youth in CT.
