Click here to read the Youth of Color Needs Assessment report

The Youth of Color Needs Assessment, a project of the NW Network, is a county-wide, systematic examination of homelessness among youth of color to clarify their experiences, strengths, and needs regarding housing. The project illustrates opportunities and barriers for King County’s ongoing efforts to prevent disproportionate rates of homelessness among youth of color.

Join us for a full-day summit featuring:

  • a morning plenary and discussion of practice implications
  • youth of color led panel discussion about experiences navigating systems and support in King County
  • afternoon presentation and discussion of policy implications of the project

Not Just Common is free and open to people involved in policies, services, or funding affecting homeless youth of color.
