New Report Addresses the Intersection of Homelessness and Juvenile Justice Involvement for Young Adults

Coalition for Juvenile Justice
 

The Coalition for Juvenile Justice recently published Implementing Change: Addressing the Intersections of Juvenile Justice and Youth Homelessness for Young Adults, which provides guidance on how to implement the recommendations of an earlier report, Addressing the Intersections of Juvenile Justice Involvement and Youth Homelessness: Principles for Change.

This report primarily focuses on the needs of young adults 18 to 24 years old that are exiting the Juvenile Justice/Criminal Justice System and are at risk of becoming homeless. It acknowledges the fact that young adults may not be able to return to their parents’ residence after they have been released from the Justice System and transitional planning should address the housing and services needs of that targeted population to ensure successful reintegration into their communities.
