Mission and Values

The mission of the Youth Action Board is to advise and inform on the Youth Homelessness Demonstration Program (YHDP) planning process as a way of representing the youth homeless community in San Antonio. The Youth Action Board is responsible for understanding and advising on improvements for the current homeless system. We pursue the creation of a homeless system centered and focused on youth and young adults. We give the voice back to the youth by establishing youth equity.

We value:

Inclusion, Diversity, Change, Support, Education, Accountability,

Equity, Service, Integrity, and Leadership
