2019 ACF Regional Listening Sessions on Family Homelessness

Report Summary: What We Learned
February 4, 2020

Between February and May 2019, the Administration for Children and Families (ACF) held 10 regional listening sessions with more than 600 stakeholders on issues related to youth and family homelessness. This executive summary is based on feedback from the regional listening sessions using participants' comments/notes, forum transcripts, and audio recordings. Organized by the ACF Office of Regional Operations and the Family and Youth Services Bureau, the listening sessions allowed ACF leaders to learn about trends, barriers, and local innovative responses from a diverse group of stakeholders including parents with lived experience, grantee and non-grantee service providers, educators, faith-based and community providers, and state and local government leaders. The sessions were an opportunity to share information about ACF's resources with attendees and to ask attendees for ways that ACF programs might be improved to better serve families and youth who are experiencing homelessness.  

Beginning in FY2015, all Runaway and Homeless Youth Program grantees were required to begin using HMIS, operated by their local U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development-funded Continuum of Care, or CoC, for all data reporting to the Family and Youth Services Bureau (FYSB). FYSB refers to the expanded system as RHY-HMIS. These frequently asked questions should aid in that reporting.
