Let’s Celebrate 50 Years!

Since 1972, we've been providing safe havens and opportunities to grow and thrive to youth experiencing homelessness and youth and families in crisis. You've stood with us. Now join us in celebrating this milestone by visiting our Celebrating 50 Years page.

Residential Support

Our residential programs provide housing, counseling, and life skills support for teenagers experiencing crisis and young people experiencing homelessness, including pregnant and parenting young women and their children.

Community-Based Support

Our community-based programs provide after-school homework help, life skills support, and safe havens for 2nd-12th graders in vulnerable communities, as well as drop-in support for their families.
