The Youth Shelter is an emergency crisis shelter for adolescents between the ages of (13) thirteen and (17) seventeen years old. We operate 24 hours a day, 365 days a year, and all of our counselors are required to possess a bachelor’s degree from an accredited university or college.
We run a highly structured daily program that allows residents time for meals, homework, recreation, chores, community service activities, etc.
In addition to meals, shelter, supervision, basic medical care, and immediate crisis care, we provide a variety of other programs to our residents in the areas of prevention, art, recreation, life-skills, etc.
Residents may access different privileges and incentives through our behavioral level system.
