We have established relationships with HUD, ACYF/HHS, DOJ, DOE, DOL, USDA, and USICH. These agencies are aware of the issue of LGBT youth homelessness and are interested in helping address the issue. We are positioned as experts to assist these agencies when opportunities arise.
While relationships have been established with the Department of Education, Department of Labor, and Department of Justice, we need focus on strengthening those relationships and identify opportunities to work together. We have also begun significant dialogue with The White House on efforts that can be undertaken during the last two years of the Obama Administration to impact the lives of homeless youth in America.
