Service Description:

Emergency runaway shelter which is part of the federal Runaway Homeless Youth Program (RHYP). Youth ages 12 through 18 are given safe shelter and food, as well as new clothes and shoes. The shelter makes efforts to reunify youth with their families if possible, or, if not possible, to transition them into long-term residential options through county social services.

Measures are taken to ensure that each resident has access to medical and dental care and psychological counseling when needed. Residents are provided help to complete high school, and encouraged, through the Y.E.S. Scholarship Program, to pursue college or technical training.




At-risk youth aged 12-18.
