Youth Towers Strategic Plan 2017-2020
Youth Towers is a response to the growing problem of homelessness affecting young people ages 19 to 26. Many of these individuals are aging out of foster care or leaving the family home and face a high risk for unemployment and living on the streets of Birmingham. Youth Towers strives to ensure that disadvantaged young people achieve economic security through a continuum of care that promotes a positive and productive outcome.
Youth Towers continuously assesses its programs and services, evaluating how best to focus its future work for the greatest impact. In recent years, Youth Towers has been deeply involved in collaborative efforts across the Greater Birmingham community striving to end and prevent homelessness. As these efforts are underway, innovative approaches are developed, and greater emphasis placed on prevention, rapid re-housing and housing first approaches.
