Who We Support
Youth Homelessness Demonstration Program Matching Funds
Sisu’s mission is to ensure that young people experiencing adversity have a safe place to sleep, the security to dream, and the support to make a positive impact on the world. The Youth Homelessness Demonstration Program (YHDP) is a new initiative by the Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD) that creates programming designed to end and prevent youth homelessness in cities across the nation. To qualify, HUD requires communities to leverage resources through cost sharing and matching funds. Sisu, alongside OKC service providers and our community’s Youth Action Board, identified three projects to bring to life: Host Homes, extended Drop-In Services, and a joint component of Transitional & Rapid Re-Housing.
