A Way Home America (AWHA) is a national initiative to build the movement to prevent and end homelessness among young people.
Together we are building on Opening Doors: Federal Strategic Plan to Prevent and End Homelessness. We are homeless youth providers, advocates, researchers, government agencies, philanthropists and young people uniting behind a common goal:
In 2020, prevent and end homelessness among all youth and young adults. Ensure that homelessness among youth and young adults is rare, and if it occurs, experiences of homelessness are brief and one-time.
We are not an organization -- we are an initiative with the sole purpose of ending youth homelessness.
