Harris County LGBTQ Homeless Prevention Overview: Schools Committee

Initiative Goals, Objectives, and Timeline

Our community is participating in the Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, Transgender, Questioning (LGBTQ) Youth Homelessness Prevention Initiative, led by the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD). As a participating community Harris County will have the opportunity to provide national leadership for developing a comprehensive approach for preventing homelessness among LGBTQ youth.

This initiative consists of developing and implementing a plan for LGBTQ youth homelessness prevention and intervention in two communities: Hamilton County, Ohio, and Harris County, Texas.
