SHELTER

Youth aged 10-17 who are runaways, experiencing homelessness, truant, or not getting along with their family or guardians at home stay at our shelters, usually for 3-5 weeks at a time. While there, they participate in a social skills development program and counseling while also maintaining their routine of attending school. This a positive, often life-changing experience for both youth and their families.
