Strategies for Coordinating Data for Youth Counts: Street Counts, HMIS and Schools Data

3:00 PM to 4:30 PM

One of the greatest challenges, and opportunities, for getting to better data on unaccompanied youth homelessness in PIT counts is coordinating and sharing data between systems and services. This webinar will include presenters from Federal agencies and the field to outline innovations and possible solutions for using and integrating data between schools, homeless management information systems (HMIS), and runaway and homeless youth services to provide a more accurate youth count. The webinar will discuss common challenges, such as timing, data protection, and data comparability issues.

Presenters: Karen Deblasio, US Department of Housing & Urban Development; John McLaughlin, US Department of Education; McKinney-Vento Liaison(s) - TBD
