The Department of Youth and Community Development (DYCD) is proud to release three Runway and Homeless Youth Services (RHY) Request for Proposals (RFP). Through these RFPs, DYCD is seeking appropriately qualified not-for-profit organizations to operate these services for runaway and homeless youth and youth at risk for homelessness in New York City and their families. Please see below for more information regarding each of the RFPs.
The primary purpose of the Drop-In Centers is to prevent youth homelessness or minimize its duration. Drop-In Centers have a broad role. They are resource hubs for the whole borough in which they are located, and they conduct outreach, provide information, and educate the public about youth homelessness and its causes. They also provide a range of direct services for RHY and youth at risk for homelessness and their families.
The purpose of Street Outreach is to help prevent youth homelessness or minimize its duration by distributing information to homeless youth and youth at risk for homelessness about available services and responding to their urgent needs, e.g., for food, clothing, first aid, transportation, etc. Street Outreach workers help youth access the range of RHY services funded by DYCD including arranging for transportation to a crisis shelter or other safe location and offering referrals to services that can assist them.
The due date for the RHY Drop-in Center and RHY Street Outreach RFPs is January 10, 2018 in the HHS Accelerator system.
