The Good Seed is actively involved in community engagement, policy discussions, and constituent outreach, to make sure that we reduce the amount of time youth experience homelessness. Our outreach and engagement program is organized with the help of community partners, and current and former homeless youth. We have found in large part youth experienced longer episodes of homelessness, due to a lack of knowledge about youth services and resources. As a result, we partnered with youth to create advertisement of services in areas highly populated by homeless transition-age youth. Locations include public libraries, medical centers, mental health organizations and other unconventional areas.
The Good Seed is always expanding our outreach and involvement with the community to try and make an impact on the crisis of homelessness that is experienced in the County of Los Angeles.
The Good Seed is actively involved with a number of coalitions, and steering committees regarding Wellness, Mental Health, and Homelessness. We are active on the LA Coalition to end Youth Homelessness Steering Committee, Service Planning Meetings, and the LA County Homeless Policy Summit on Outreach and Engagement.
