Programs: Engage - our drop-in center and street outreach team help homeless young people meet their basic needs and connect to services, including case management and emergency shelter.
Stabilize - We operate five transitional housing programs designed to give young people a safe place to work towards the next steps in their life, including education and employment.
Prepare - our employment training programs help young people gain skills and confidence while learning how to write a resume, interview with employers, and maintain paid employment. Young people can complete their GED or enroll in high school with us. Once they've completed their secondary education, we work with them to apply to college.
