Interoperability Collaborations

The Family and Youth Services Bureau (FYSB) works closely and collaboratively with a number of agencies both within the Department of Health and Human Services and across the government. Some of the interagency partnerships include working with the Department of Education, Department of Justice and Department of Labor.

FYSB works with specific offices in those agencies to further our mission of supporting the organizations and communities that work every day to put an end to youth homelessness, adolescent pregnancy and domestic violence.

Department of Education

  • Office of Elementary and Secondary Education helps ensure equal access to education and additional services for students in need of special assistance and support, including children who are low-income, have disabilities or developmental delays, or are homeless or in foster care
  • Office of Postsecondary Education houses the Student Service Division and funds programs for low-income or disadvantaged youth to have better access to postsecondary opportunities including Upward Bound
  • National Center for Homeless Education operates the Department of Education's technical assistance and information center for the Education for Homeless Children and Youth Program including locating McKinney-Vento liaisons in each state
