Our programs

Youth Shelters

We operate three youth shelters (Gainesville, Palatka, and Lake City) that serve youth aged 10-17 who are experiencing homelessness, have run away from home, are truant, or have extreme conflict at home. 

While in our shelters, participants develop social-emotional skills and participate in individual, group, and family counseling.


We provide short-term counseling for youth and families through our Family Action Program. 



We also work with youth who are aging out of the foster care system and require additional supports for their personal and professional development. 


We offer a series of programs related to prevention. 

Our SNAP program targets youth aged 6-11 and their parents/guardians. 


We also have Prevention programs that are housed in schools within Alachua and Levy counties.
