The Youth Homelessness Demonstration Project is an innovative initiative funded by HUD to end youth homelessness. Madison/County has been awarded 2.5 million dollars to end youth homelessness within our own community. This project will bring the community together and combine efforts to ensure system-wide changes and a foundation to drive the mission of ending youth homelessness into action.

The Wisconsin Continuum of Care and Briarpatch have partnered together to launch projects that will be implemented throughout Madison/Dane to serve youth and young adults on their pathway to self-sufficiency and strong independence. 

Our Coordinated Community Plan (CCP) has been developed with our Youth Action Board at the helm, service providers, as well, as a variety of county sectors and community members.
