YFS recently launched an evaluation of our Thriving Families demonstration project during an event hosted by the Community Services Industry Alliance.

Thriving Families was a YFS-funded trial of an integrated response to homeless young families. The project brought together a Housing Specialist and some Family Coaches to help families with young children get housed fast, then pursue goals to build a good life for themselves and their children.

The evaluation found that the approach worked for two reasons: the integration of specialist and general supports, and the family resourcing approach that backs the family to set and pursue their own priorities.
