Nominate a Champion of Change: Ending Child and Youth Homelessness

May 22, 2012

The U.S. Interagency Council on Homelessness is excited to announce that in partnership with The White House Office of Public Engagement, the Department of Health and Human Services, and the Department of Housing and Urban Development, a White House Champions of Change event will be held on ending homelessness among youth and children. As we continue to build momentum towards ending youth and child homelessness by 2020, we are seeking nominations to recognize Champions of Change who have made a significant difference in the way their community addresses homelessness among children and youth.

Each week, the White House Champions of Change program highlights the stories and examples of Americans, businesses, or organizations who embody 'Innovate, Educate, and Build.' Different groups are highlighted each week ranging from educators to entrepreneurs to community activists. Our office and the White House Office of Public Engagement will host an event at the White House to honor those who are "Winning the Future" and who further empower and inspire other members of their respective communities.

At the event on July 12th, agency representatives and Administration Officials will participate in a discussion with the Champions to hear about the innovative work they are doing. In conjunction with this White House event, the Champions will be featured on the White House website.

The nominations window is now closed. Please return at the end of June to learn about the Champions who were selected and more about the event.
