The BCRHYTF exists to find both temporary and permanent solutions to the problem of youth homelessness in Butte County. We hope that by expanding collaboration with local agencies, governments, service providers, schools and other organizations, we can provide a framework and network for finding and implementing those solutions. While advocating for homeless youth, we also hope to provide those youth with a voice and platform to advocate for themselves. BCRHYTF strives to be inclusive and respectful of the diverse range of ideas and experience of all those who make up our community.
The Butte Countywide Homeless Continuum of Care Veteran Committee is a partnership of City, County, State, Federal, and Non-Profit agencies that work together and pool their resources to help reduce veteran homelessness as well as help veterans who are at risk of becoming homeless. Through cooperative partnerships, we as an advocacy body, can help mitigate many risk factors that lead as well as contribute to homelessness. We do this, because as a body dedicated to reducing homelessness, improving our local communities begins with giving a hand to the individuals that served their nation. Serving those that has selflessly served us is our mission.
