Marin County Cooperation Team, through funding from Tipping Point Community, a nonprofit in the Bay Area that finds, funds and strengthens poverty-fighting solutions, has started programming to support transitional age youth experiencing homelessness in Marin.
The new programming includes leading the formation and operation of a youth action board to create a safe, organized space to ensure transitional youth voices are heard in Marin’s continuum of care as well as case management and outreach for those experiencing homelessness.
In June, MCCT staff attended the seventh annual National Symposium on Solutions to End Youth Homelessness in New York. Over two days, they attended more than 20 workshops and networked with national leaders. Workshop topics included housing voucher discrimination, food injustice, federal policy and pay equity.
“Togetherness allows for all socially constructed boundaries to be removed and bears the fruit of what can be possible if we unite,” said Jahmeer Reynolds, founder and executive director of MCCT.
