This population also interacts with a different range of service providers. Response: Expand HMIS coverage or data sharing to youthspecific service providers (e.g. schools). Outreach teams dedicated to youth and young adults. Youth-focused marketing campaigns. Tap knowledge of youth with previous lived

This Confronting Data Related Barriers in Youth Homelessness Initiatives George Martin, HomeBase Collecting Sensitive Information Barrier: Youth and young adults are afraid or unable to share information that is important to housing them or to tracking progress on metrics. Information such as LGTBQ+ status and history of trauma. Response: Stop asking but target housing and services toward that population as much as possible.

Partnerships with organizations that serve LGBTQ+ youth. Authentic engagement with youth with lived experience. This Confronting Data Related Barriers in Youth Homelessness Initiatives George Martin, HomeBase Legal Barriers to Information Sharing Barrier: Sharing data about homeless youth under the age of 18 is complicated by legal issues around parental consent.
