One by One: Western PA CoC Youth Count 2020

Join the One By One Western PA Continuum of Care in our first Youth Count to help identify youth experiencing homelessness or unstable housing in Western PA.

Youth homelessness is often hidden. Join a community-wide effort to better identify youth experiencing homelessness and advocate for more resources!

The Youth Count will be held April 22-24, 2020

Youth Count outreach activities will be broken out into four regions – see map below. Although all counties are encouraged to participate, the CoC is targeting counties that have reported higher numbers of youth experiencing homelessness and housing instability, including: Butler, Clearfield, Crawford, Fayette, Lawrence, McKean, Mercer, Venango, Washington & Westmoreland.

You Can Help!

  • Volunteer on the days of the Count
  • Donate sleeping bags, tents, gift cards or nonperishable food items
  • Raise awareness of the realities of youth homelessness in your community
