The emergency youth shelter provides short-term supportive housing for up to 37 youth ages 6-18 every night. The highly-individualized program is designed to meet the immediate needs of homeless youth and to equip them with the tools they need to grow into healthy, independent adults. Although clients typically stay in the program for less than 90 days, they can remain enrolled until our case managers locate a stable alternative living arrangement.
The Community Counseling Program provides counseling, case-management and referral assistance to children, youth and families faced with the threat of homelessness. Free counseling services are available for individuals, groups and families (ages 8-24) in the community who are facing family conflict, behavioral/mental problems, engaging in at-risk behavior and are often truant from school.
The Street Outreach Program of Promise House connects with youth living on the streets and assists them to find safe living arrangements. The dedicated case manager is on the streets three nights a week looking for these homeless youth and builds relationships with them to provide educational information, referrals and support services.
The Transitional Living Program (TLP) at Promise House equips homeless youth ages 16 through 21 years old with the skills and education necessary to become independent, productive adults. The program’s goal is to help formerly homeless youth develop much-needed independent living skills in a nurturing environment that offers stability, consistency and safety.
