DHS-PB-2017-05: Referrals of Runaway Homeless Youth to Department of Homeless Services (DHS) Shelters

Runaway and Homeless Youth (RHY) Services are funded by the Department of Youth and Community Development (DYCD) and operated by DYCD-funded RHY Service Providers. Youth who, by no fault of their own, are no longer eligible to participate in those services may continue to require shelter, necessitating referral to the Department of Homeless Services (DHS) to meet their ongoing shelter needs.

For example, some youth may require shelter beyond the State’s maximum allowable length of stay in a DYCD-funded Shelter, while others may require shelter beyond the maximum age an individual can reside in DYCD-funded Shelter.
