        Amends the Children  and  Family  Services  Act.  Authorizes  the      
   Department   of   Children   and  Family  Services  to  license  youth      
   transitional housing programs to provide services, shelter, or housing      
   to homeless minors. Amends the  Child  Care  Act  of  1969  to  add  a      
   definition  of  "youth  transitional  housing  facility".  Amends  the      
   Emancipation  of Mature Minors Act. Changes the short title of the Act      
   to  the  Emancipation  of  Minors  Act.  Provides  for   the   partial      
   emancipation  of  homeless  minors.  Provides  that  an order granting      
   custody or guardianship of a child to the Department of  Children  and      
   Family  Services  may not be terminated or modified for the purpose of      
   obtaining emancipation of the child as a homeless  minor  (instead  of      
   providing  that  no  child  may  be  terminated  from  DCFS custody or      
   guardianship for the purpose of obtaining emancipation). Provides that      
   nothing in the Emancipation of Minors Act relieves any State or  local      
   agency  of  any  obligation  imposed  by  law  to  provide services or      
   assistance to any  eligible  child  or  youth.  Makes  other  changes.
