Youth report that family conflict is the primary reason for homelessness.
Young people also report a genuine desire to remain at or return home when home is safe. Building strong attachments to family and natural supports are one of the best ways to prevent or resolve youth homelessness. But, families are complicated and often they need help to live together successfully.
Our Family Reconnect program supports youth and their families to stay together, strengthen and stabilize by offering access to community resources, counseling and comprehensive case management.
Referrals come to us through schools, community partners, calls to our shelter and self-referrals.
