A new Systems for Action (S4A) study examines multi-sector programming designed to improve outcomes for youth experiencing homelessness in Hennepin County, Minnesota.

The study organizes community-engaged consensus-building sessions with stakeholders from medical, social, and public health systems and with youth experiencing homelessness in order to co-create strategies for system alignment, including clinical practice guidelines and co-location of health and social services for youth experiencing housing insecurity.

S4A researchers at the University of Minnesota's Youth Health and Housing Lab are collaborating with the Hennepin County Youth Homelessness Demonstration Program, the Minnesota Department of Health, the Hennepin Healthcare System, Minnesota Community Care, and local youth-serving agencies.

S4A research builds a Culture of Health by rigorously testing new ways of connecting the nation’s fragmented medical, social, and public health systems.
