    Our mission is to end the cycle of youth homelessness. Our volunteers and staff are here to empower homeless and at-risk youth toward lifelong personal growth, and to create in these youth a sincere belief in themselves through open, straightforward counseling, mentoring, and life-skills training.

    We serve unaccompanied homeless and at risk youth – and young parents with children of their own – up to their 25th birthday. Our ongoing mission is to end the cycle of youth homelessness. To do this, we have built four core programs in many of the cities where we operate in volunteer teams: Street Outreach, Outreach Centers, Mentoring, and Apartment Support. We are quite proud of the fact that our volunteer teams build trust and become a consistent resource to stabilize and otherwise help those youth that the rest of society ignored.
