The Family Violence Prevention and Services Act (FVPSA) provides the primary federal funding stream dedicated to the support of emergency shelter and supportive services for victims of domestic violence and their dependents.

FVPSA funding supports the infrastructure and network of national training and technical assistance to help states, communities, and tribes address complex social, legal, medical, and housing needs for victims of domestic violence and their children.

The Runaway and Homeless Youth Program is governed by Part 1351--Runaway and Homeless Youth Program Visit disclaimer page of the Code of Federal Regulations.

In 2016, the Family and Youth Services Bureau (FYSB) released the Street Outreach Program (SOP) Data Collection Study. The goal of the SOP Data Collection Study was to learn more about the needs of street youth from their perspective, to better understand services utilization, and to identify alternative services that can be useful for them. In an effort to disseminate valuable information to the Runaway and Homeless Youth field and to those working with vulnerable youth, FYSB is releasing the SOP Data Collection Study infographic, which highlights key data from the SOP Data Collection Study, to encourage community discussions about the challenges impacting street youth and find solutions to assist this vulnerable population.

This report provides a snapshot of what thousands of youth in crisis faced during the year. It also reveals trends and describes how the National Runaway Safeline encourages young people to work through their problems before they end up on the street.
