Runaway and Homeless Youth Prevention Month

Get ready! November is Runaway and Homeless Youth Prevention Month (RHYPM), declared by the Legislature this year in Senate Concurrent Resolution 161 and with help from California Senator Scott Wiener who authored the bill. It’s time to prepare to launch your efforts to commemorate the month, all November long!

So be ready to get involved, spread the word, and make your communities, policy-makers, and local media outlets aware of the critical needs of runaway, homeless, and disconnected youth.

We are also interested in what you plan to do throughout November to raise awareness of RHYM throughout the month. Please send your stories, ideas, events, etc. to Executive Director, Jevon Wilkes at We would love to feature your activities and events in our November newsletters. On behalf of the youth we all serve, thank you for your efforts!
