Family Interventions for Youth Experiencing or at Risk of Homelessness

Abstract

This report summarizes evidence on family intervention strategies for youth experiencing or at risk of homelessness, gathered through a literature review and conversations with a few key informants. Research has uncovered a few effective family intervention strategies that provide insight into what makes these strategies successful, but more research is needed to evaluate those targeted to youth experiencing or at risk of homelessness. More research is also needed on how to target family interventions to key subgroups, such as youth who are racial and ethnic minorities or LGBTQ.
