National Network for Youth: Healing and Wellness

The National Network for Youth (NN4Y) has been a public education and policy advocacy organization dedicated to the prevention and eradication of youth homelessness in America for over 40 years.

Why We Invested

The Rights and Dignity (RAD) Working Group comprises representatives from The Omidyar Group, Democracy Fund, Humanity United and Luminate, and is committed to addressing conditions and systems of hate through a values-based, collaborative approach. Democracy Fund convenes and supports the working group.

The RAD Working Group recognizes that those working to preserve the rights and dignity of vulnerable communities in the United States are facing direct and vicarious trauma, compassion fatigue, burnout, and a range of physical and emotional needs. The purpose of this grant is to support wellness and healing for frontline staff at National Network for Youth, and to learn about strategies, resources, and needs in the field.
