Over a two-year period, the A Way Home America Grand Challenge will help ten communities, including San Francisco, end homelessness for LGBTQ+ Youth and Youth of Color. The Grand Challenge is a problem-solving initiative in several critical approaches: youth collaboration, LGBTQ+ and racial equity, and quality improvement. It aims to set the path to ending homelessness for all youth.
Throughout the next two years, providers, young people, funders, and other key stakeholders will be working and learning together. Funders hold a unique role in the success of this challenge, whether it beas a convener or as an advocate. As each community gears up for the work ahead, Funders Together and A Way Home America are hosting conversations for funders in San Francisco to introduce them to the team of local community members leading this challenge and to discuss the various ways funders can engage in this work.
