Youth providers and Access Points should assess unstably housed youth ages 18-24 and can refer to Youth Diversion (312-655-7165) if appropriate.
Most unstably housed youth are assessed by youth providers and at Access Points.
Unstably housed youth assessed by an adult provider outside of an Access Point should have help calling Catholic Charities Youth Diversion (312-655-7165) because this may open up more doors for the young person. The Diversion Coordinator can still assess the youth, though they may be able to enroll the person for diversion supports and/or assist with additional referrals
The main point of unstably housed youth not encountered where they are typically seen having this warm hand off is to ensure this cohort is best served/connected
