The Sanctuary is a short-term, safe shelter for youths ages 10-17 in crisis. Any youth in the community who has run away, is homeless, or is in an abusive, hostile, or intense situation at home can qualify for program services. This is a voluntary youth program that requires parental consent and participation. Individuals stay at the Sanctuary for up to 3 weeks, they receive round the clock supervision, intensive individual and family counseling, group counseling, and access to peer support. The definition of crisis is wide but the focus of support at the shelter is aimed toward Family Reunification. Shelter services at The Sanctuary include transitional aftercare counseling support. Youth and families can choose to continue with services on a weekly basis for up to three months. The Sanctuary also offers on a limited basis, free community outpatient counseling services for adolescents and young adults ages 10-24.
A Step Forward is a safe and home-like transitional living shelter where homeless youth (ages 16-17) may stay for up to two years while they attend school and maintain employment. Designed for youth seeking self-sufficiency, this program also offers counseling, job training, career development, educational assistance, financial subsidies, and medical assistance.
The Graduated Apartment Program (GAP) provides independent living services for youth ages 18-24 years old who are experiencing homelessness. GAP offers up to 24 months of housing, case management, counseling, and educational and employment support to help people develop a greater level of self-sufficiency, interpersonal skills and housing readiness.
