DYCD in partnership with DHS launched a direct referral process to allow youth from DYCD-funded residential programs to more easily transition to the adult shelter system. Such practice was codified in Local Law 81 of 2018.
DYCD funded providers of Runaway and Homeless Youth (RHY) Services, including all residential programs and Drop-In Centers serving youth with case management services, will offer participants information about services and resources related to immigration.
Report provides the number of runaway and homeless youth who contacted or presented themselves to a runaway and homeless youth services program to request shelter and were not able to access shelter services during the six month period ending on June 30.
