The existing laws underserve runaway and homeless youth. This Bill will address needs of these youth in crisis in meaningful, effective, efficient, and cost effective ways. This Act establishes a comprehensive system of support resources and services that directly targets the runaway and homeless youth population. Data collection and reporting is also required by this Bill as a means of measuring the effectiveness of the programming and to promote future program design and implementation. This data will also reveal important predictors which can assist with identifying troubled youth before they are in crisis.
