The goal of the program is to assist young adults who are at-risk of or who are already experiencing homelessness to reintegrate in the community by helping them obtain or maintain safe, affordable housing and by linking them to mainstream, community-based services they need.

Services Include:

  1. Working with a Life Coach/Navigator to develop a housing plan.
  2. Locating housing, paying application/credit check fees, first month’s rent and/or security deposits, providing moving assistance and facilitating landlord/tenant mediation.
  3. Linking youth with other community services, such as employment assistance, education, training, physical, mental, and/or chemical health services, child care, transportation assistance or legal services.
  4. Subsidizing rent – either one-time, or for short or medium terms. The rental unit lease agreement is in the assisted youth’s name.
