Atlanta Youth Count Starting Soon!
August 20 2018
This Fall, students, advocates, service providers, and researchers from across metro Atlanta will come together to count and assess the state of sexually trafficked homeless youth in the area.
The goals are to: 1) provide metro-Atlanta service providers, policymakers, and youth advocates practical information on the size, nature, and needs of the homeless; 2) collect information that can be used to develop and refine policies, programs, and interventions to help these youth in our community; and 3) encourage a community-wide dialogue about the needs and social determinants of youth homeless.
StandUp For Kids is proud to be a part of this information collection project in partnership with Georgia State University. We will share the findings once the report is published. For more information contact: Ana LaBoy, Project Manager, at Alaboy1@gsu.edu.
