LGBTQ+ teens and young adults are more than twice as likely to be homeless than their peers. Host homes build off of a "history of resilience and resistance.”

With coaching and coordination support, each type of learning setting (families, everyday places, cultural and recreational institutions, child care and afterschool programs) can strengthen their supports for learners, families and family learning.

Lockdown drills aimed at preparing students to protect themselves from school shooters do more to stir kids’ anxiety than their sense of protection.

188 school shootings occurred during the 2021-22 academic year according to recent federal data. Roughly 95 percent of K-12th-grade schools nationwide now training children and faculty on what to do if there’s an active shooter inside the building or on campus grounds.

Malik Rainey, arrested at 16 for firearm possession, was given a second chance through Avenues for Justice. Avenues' approach, which includes education, counseling, and job placement, has been successful in reducing recidivism and their cost-efficiency compared to juvenile detention.

Avenues’ program shows first-time juvenile offenders possibilities that many often feel aren't available to them because of who they are and where they’re from. The goal is to help kids build a good track record and show the court the progress they make.
