2017 Youth Count for Memphis/Shelby County

Many young adults do not fit the textbook definition of “homeless”, although they would significantly benefit from access to resources for stable housing.  The Homeless Services Community of Memphis is trying to better understand the needs of young adults who experience housing instability by hosting the 2017 Come and Be Counted event.

In conjunction with the annual Point-in-Time Count, the 2017 Youth Count is an outreach effort to understand and meet the needs of young adults between the ages of 18 and 24 who are experiencing housing instability.  Data received from the Youth Count will impact funding and planning for services.

Volunteers are needed to survey young adults at various locations throughout the city! 

If you are under 25, please come out on Saturday, January 28th from 11am-2pm at the Cossitt Library (33 S Front Street).  At this event, you will complete a short survey and meet service providers who can help!
