Program and Services
One of our goals is to encourage youth to work out their problems. To provide crisis intervention to help families within the "living environment", if possible or outside the living environment.
Residential Transitional Living Program
Our residential transitional living portion of the program provides for youth 13-18 for up to 15 days of intake and 18 months of shelter, information and counseling in basic life skills to promote transition to self-sufficiency and prevent long-term dependency on social services.
Housing Rehabilitation Project
Our housing rehabilitation project consist of completely rehabilitating a vacant, dilapidated house in order to provide temporary shelter for runaway and homeless youth that have transitioned from our Residential Transitional Living Program on their way to self-sufficiency. This program is for 18.5 to 21 years of age.
Outreach Prevention Project
As part of our prevention program we plan throughout the year to put together a variety of school and community-based projects including: Date rape prevention, domestic violence prevention, enrichment for parents, self-esteem, teen theater, and drug and alcohol prevention.
