Homeless Children and Youth: Community Standards for Youth Homeless Shelters

Community standards for youth homeless shelters were developed as a collaboration of existing youth serving agencies and partners in Oklahoma. The intent is to create a minimum standard of expectations for reasonable care and safety for youth shelters that are not licensed by the Oklahoma Department of Human Services (OKDHS).  The standards address important issues related to governance; staff/personnel; finance; health; safety; resident rights and responsibilities; and other standards.
