Providers of outreach, prevention, safe havens and counseling services for runaway and homeless youth are keenly aware that many of the young people who seek their services have witnessed domestic violence and/or have been victims of relationship violence, and/or child maltreatment or neglect in their homes. In many communities, there is a lack of interaction between RHY and DV/SA programs that creates a gap in information and services between the two. By sharing our knowledge and teaching one another about the populations served by each community, outreach outcomes and service provision to those in need can be greatly enhanced.  How can we do this? The panelists from MANY and Bridge Over Troubled Waters, discuss ways to close this gap and shares promising practices to enhance collaborations.
