A Way Home Washington (AWHWA) (awayhomewa.org) a fiscally sponsored project of TSNE (tsne.org), is mission-driven to prevent and end youth and young adult homelessness across Washington state. In the state of Washington, 13,000 unaccompanied youth and young adults experience homelessness, and young people of color and LGBTQ+ young people disproportionately experience homelessness. AWHWA partners with the state Office of Homeless Youth, philanthropic foundations, advocates, and service providers who support these young people. AWHWA leads and coordinates these stakeholders as we work collectively to build a statewide system so that local communities can respond to youth and young adult homelessness in their areas. In our work, we are committed to racial and LGBTQ+ equity, positive youth development, trauma-informed practices and a data-driven culture.
About the Anchor Community Initiative
AWHWA launched the Anchor Community Initiative (ACI) in 2018 as a central pillar of our mission and activities. The ACI is currently supporting the first four communities in Washington state end unaccompanied youth and young adult homelessness by 2022, and is expanding to additional communities in 2022. For the ACI, success includes creating clear, believable proof points that demonstrate it is possible to solve this problem; learning what a sustainable system to end youth homelessness looks like; identifying what it takes to end disproportionality for LGBTQ+ youth and youth of color alongside ending homelessness for all young people; and generating progress and new action throughout Washington. Most importantly, young people struggling with homelessness will know our state values their wellbeing and is able to help them find safety and stability. The ultimate vision is that ACI will include 12-15 communities. We are currently funded for 2 cohorts, totaling up to eight communities.
