Safe Homes: Whatever the reason, a young person who needs a place to stay can find a home at Sasha Bruce, as well as counseling and classes that can lead them back to a more stable and supportive family situation, or on a path to true independence and self-sufficiency.
Life Skills: We believe that our work should not only contribute to the individuals and families we serve but that we should help youth and families develop capacity to advocate in their own behalf. Together we look forward to a more socially just world.
Workforce & Education: Sasha Bruce Youthwork provides a variety of programs to help educate young people and prepare them for meaningful and satisfying careers. And a primary objective of all of our work is to encourage young people to be civically engaged.
