The St. John’s University School of Law Child Advocacy Clinic hosts a symposium, No Place to Live: The Housing Crisis Facing Youth Aging-Out of Foster Care, March 28, 2008. A PDF flyer is here.
The School of Law is bringing together distinguished scholars and practitioners from diverse disciplines, including policy makers, affordable housing professionals and advocates for children and the homeless, to discuss the housing crisis that is facing adolescents as they exit foster care around the country. Young people experiencing this crisis will also play a vital role. We will engage in expert dialogue which both raises awareness and explores concrete solutions to this critical national issue.
