StreetConnect was developed as a multi-purpose resource site focussing on homeless and street-involved youths that was developed through a partnership between youth service providers, youths, and researchers. Here's what you can find at StreetConnect:
- Youths can find a huge range of resources and answers to common questions on every topic from getting I.D. to finding out where you can show your art. Check it out!
- Youth service providers can find summaries of the latest research on intervention, learn about key researchers in the area, and learn about resources to pass on to their clients by looking through the youth section.
- Other groups, including healthcare providers, the general public, and policy makers can get answers to common questions from youths themselves.
- Information for parents and guardians of missing youths.
