Measuring Up: Youth-Level Outcomes and Measures for System Responses to Youth Homelessness

This Chapin Hall report is a collaborative effort of researchers, practitioners, the Youth Collaboratory, philanthropic organizations, and Federal agencies including the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services’ Family and Youth Services Bureau and the Office of Planning, Research and Evaluation. It refers to the gap in what to measure in terms of efforts to combat youth homelessness and how to measure outcomes. To address this gap, the report reviews existing measures and draws upon the 2011 USICH Framework to End Homelessness, which is based on four core outcomes areas: stable housing, permanent connections, social-emotional well-being, and education or employment.
