Each November, FYSB joins youth-serving organizations, youth advocates, and other partners to observe National Runaway Prevention Month (NRPM), a public-awareness campaign designed to “Shine a Light” on the experiences of runaway and homeless youth, and spotlight prevention resources.
Human services programs can benefit from helping program participants build their social capital, or relationships, networks, and community connections, that can empower them on their road to future success.
FYSB and OHS collaborate to help pregnant and parenting homeless youth and their children.
National Runaway Prevention Month focuses on the importance of prevention services.
Collaboration between the Family and Youth Services Bureau’s (FYSB) three programs, Family Violence Prevention and Services, Runaway and Homeless Youth, and Adolescent Pregnancy Prevention, is critical in working to end the many forms of violence that affect youth, decrease the likelihood of future violence, and increase the health and wellbeing of those being served.
