Outreach Centers

In a nutshell

Several of our locations across the United States have brick-and-mortar spaces where youth can drop-in to rest, receive a hot meal, receive healthcare, meet with our volunteer counselors, and receive help with applications for housing, school, and/or citizenship. Some locations also accommodate shower and laundry facilities.

 

Space to thrive  

The intent and purpose of our Outreach Centers are to provide safe and protective environments for homeless and at-risk youth. An Outreach Center helps provide the support network of basic human needs and development through educational programs, one-on-one counseling, and an ongoing atmosphere of hope and concern.

Outreach Center highlights:

  • A safe environment to rest
  • A safe place to make meaningful relationships with caring adults
  • Referral services for available programs throughout the community
  • Meals and snacks
  • Hygiene products
  • Job referral service
  • Telephone message and mail service
  • Apartment finding service (and assistance with furnishing an apartment)
  • Identification services (birth certificates, Social Security cards, etc.)
  • Structured life-skills and other wellness activities
