Berkeley Researchers Receive Grant to Expand Youth Homelessness Study

Dr. Colette “Coco” Auerswald, associate professor at the University of California, Berkeley School of Public Health, and collaborators at the Sacramento-based Homeless Youth Project were recently awarded a $400,000 grant from the California Wellness Foundation. The grant will fund research to create a better system to count homeless youth in California. The research is inspired by questions about why transitional age youth, those age 18-24, don’t appear in the data.
