Higher Education and Homelessness Workgroup Strategic Plan 2020–2023

Last Updated Jul 7, 2020

In response to the rising rates of postsecondary students struggling with housing instability and homelessness, the Higher Education and Homelessness Workgroup (HEHW) was launched in July 2017 to develop strategies and cross-systems solutions to student homelessness. HEHW, facilitated by LAHSA, began by bringing together leaders from youth housing providers, over a dozen postsecondary institutions, CEO’s Homeless Initiative, Center for Strategic Public-Private Partnerships, and education policy advocates.

In 2020, with support from JBAY, LAHSA conducted a strategic planning process, which outlines a three-year plan for addressing college student homelessness.
