YouthCare is excited to announce a new partnership with the University of Washington and the statewide Office of Homeless Youth called the Doorway Project. This partnership aims to streamline services for young people in the University District and well as create a neighborhood hub and navigation center specifically for homeless young people.
“We know what works to stabilize young people and help them develop their potential,” said YouthCare CEO and President Melinda Giovengo. “One thing we’ve found that works extremely well is to engage young people who are experiencing homelessness, treat them as the rightful experts on their experience, and give them a voice in solutions going forward. We’re really proud to be part of the Doorway Project, because it’s a new way of addressing youth homelessness in the University District—asking youth to be part of the conversation.”
