We serve unaccompanied homeless and at risk youth up to their 25th birthday. Our ongoing mission is to end the cycle of youth homelessness. The foundation of our work is based around the national organization's pillars of support (Street Outreach, Outreach Centers, Mentoring and Housing) as defined here. However, each chapter is given the flexibility to address local issues nimbly and specific to the needs of the local communities they serve. The Orange County chapter does this through two main programs, Roadmap to Success (RMTS) and Journey to Self-Sufficiency (JTS), as well as supplemental programs: WeDeliver, STEM (science, technology, engineering, math), Entrepreneurship, and OC Colleges Project.  All of these programs are defined below.

Roadmap to Success (RMTS)

The RMTS program is an in-school or after-school program focused on supporting school-aged students, ages 12 to 18, who are at-risk of experiencing homelessness or identified under the McKinney-Vento Act in the county's school systemLearn More.
