First Place For Youth
Mar 19, 2018
The West Coast Convening (WCC) is a biannual meeting of service providers, advocates, researchers, and government partners from California, Oregon, and Washington, who are interested in the issue of youth homelessness.
Responding to a dearth of practical guidance available for providers in the area of outcomes measurement, the WCC’s Outcomes Workgroup sought to create a framework that providers and stakeholders could use to facilitate results-driven care, data sharing, and cross-agency analysis.
