Youth Action Board

In a bold step towards combating youth homelessness, Charlotte County, Florida has been selected as a distinguished Youth Homelessness Demonstration Program (YHDP) community by the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD). This recognition marks a pivotal moment in the county's commitment to addressing the critical issue of youth homelessness.

At the heart of this transformative initiative is the dedicated Charlotte County -Youth Action Board (YAB), a dynamic group of passionate individuals (under the age of 25) committed to reshaping the landscape of services for Charlotte County's young people facing homelessness. The YAB comprises driven advocates, community leaders, and service providers working collaboratively to implement innovative strategies and interventions.

Through targeted programs, increased outreach, and strategic partnerships, the YAB aims to provide a lifeline of support to youth experiencing homelessness. Their vision encompasses immediate relief and long-term solutions that empower young individuals to break free from the cycle of homelessness and build brighter, more secure futures.

Charlotte County's participation in the YHDP and the tireless efforts of the YAB signal a resounding commitment to ensuring that no young person in the community has to face homelessness alone. Together, they stand as a beacon of hope, demonstrating that with collective action and unwavering dedication, we can create a future where every young person has the opportunity to thrive.
