We provide temporary shelter for Transition Aged Youth (“TAY”) clients in a supportive housing environment for up to 36 nights. While housed, each TAY must pursue their long-term goals, which includes securing permanent housing while building their capacity to navigate life’s challenges and opportunities. Most TAY take advantage of our comprehensive services to seek employment, education and other long term life goals. The Enhanced Emergency Shelter Program offers a warm, clean and safe place to sleep, clean facilities, and three meals every day. We provide case management and offer additional supportive services such as an apprenticeship program.
