Housing Options for Youth
Ages 12 and up
Host Family Program
We currently have students attending school each and every day who have no idea where they will stay that night. How do you focus on or on homework, a presentation, or even an important test?
You can help these youth by opening your home and becoming a host family.
The goal of this program is to provide an innovative emergency housing option that gives youth a safe family to live with until a longer term option can be found. The host family program provides housing support to unaccompanied homeless youth ages 12 and up to support them in staying in school.
These kids are kind, intelligent, and just need a break. Many of these youth are leaving situations that are keeping them from a good education and just need to have someone believe in them.
Won’t you consider opening your home to help a student achieve the future they have dreamed of?
