Lambda Legal collaborated with the National Alliance to End Homelessness, the National Network for Youth, and the National Center for Lesbian Rights to co-author a policy brief that provides a brief overview of homelessness among LBGT youth and makes recommendations that provide direction to agencies and not-for-profit organizations to increase their competency in working with LGBT homeless youth. The recommendations include specific guidance on improving practice, organizational culture, and residential services to better serve LGBT youth.
