Homeless Youth Committee

The purpose of the Homeless Youth committee is to: (1) advocate for policies, programs, and issues that benefit homeless youth and their families, and (2) provide direct community service opportunities and initiatives.

The committee is currently working towards initiatives to:

  • Assist parents/guardians of school-aged children to complete the eviction notice process
  • Create legislation in favor of families whose landlords have begun the eviction process.

We also share the Coalition for the Homeless’s 2022 Louisville Street Tips (a quick reference guide for people in need of shelter, outreach services, food, healthcare, and other help in Louisville, KY) which can be found by clicking HERE.

If you have questions about the committee, or would like to join in on our efforts, please contact its chairpersons Marlene Gordon and Phyllis Florman at office@ncjwlou.org
