A funding announcement, a conference, and a new report

Life at Point Source Youth has been eventful lately.  Just in the past week, three exciting things have happened:

Funding from the Arcus Foundation and the Palette Fund

We're delighted to officially announce that Point Source Youth has received funding from the Arcus Foundation and the Palette Fund, which will support our Minneapolis Pilot, the ConneQT Collaborative.  You can read more in our official press release.

Conference on Reckoning with Homelessness in NYC

Point Source Youth's President and co-founder Larry Cohen was invited to speak on a panel at the conference on Reckoning with Homelessness in New York City, hosted by NYU's McSilver Institute for Poverty Policy and Research.  It was a humbling opportunity to discuss our work alongside a number of luminaries in the field, including one of our scientific advisors Dennis Culhane, who co-chaired the event.  You can find more info on the conference and presenters here.

"At the Intersections" Report highlights Point Source Youth

Finally, we're honored that our work has been highlighted in the report "At the Intersections: A Collaborative Resource on LGBTQ Youth Homelessness," co-authored by the True Colors Fund and the National LGBTQ Task Force.  The report is a great way to learn about innovative approaches to addressing the problem, and you can read it online in its entirety here.
