Finding Solutions to Youth Homelessness

Youth have been among the hardest hit by the recent economic downturn, which has left them struggling for employment, housing and safety. Our Neon Street Dorms help  youth experiencing homelessness get back on their feet, not only with a roof over their heads, but with support in finding employment and completing their education.

We’re also working on the state and national levels, advocating for funding for youth programs and providing training around employment and housing for teens.
