Vision and Mission


We envision an equitable system of collaboration where young people who have experienced homelessness work alongside other stakeholders as employed action researchers and equal partners in the design of services they receive and in the development of comprehensive policy and practices to end youth homelessness.


To achieve this vision, our mission is to build and support a statewide coordinated network of youth leaders who have experienced housing instability by providing them with professional career-building employment as participatory action researchers and leaders in ending youth homelessness in Connecticut.
