Ending Youth Homelessness Cannot Wait
Every minute a young person spends on the streets increases his or her risk of being traumatized, exploited, and assaulted. The Village’s strategy to preventing chronic homelessness is to ensure that homeless teens have access to the services and support they need, including youth shelters and safe housing, so they can regain their health and well-being, and achieve full independence.
Last year, chronic youth homelessness increased 220% in the San Fernando & Santa Clarita Valleys
From Street to Sustainability
Ending youth homelessness requires a comprehensive, personalized array of services that include housing, health care, therapy, vocational training, employment services, educational support and more. We call this our “wraparound” approach to care. Providing intense, community-based services guarantees that youth are given the tools, skills, and resources they need to get off the streets and move forward with their lives.
Ending Youth Homelessness Requires Everyone Working Together.
Different perspective on life
“I was on my guard when I came here. It was up ‘till I met this amazing counselor who provided me with a different perspective on life and the situation I was in. If it wasn’t for the friendly staff and resources, I would still be on the street; still be depressed, putting myself down, and finding any which way to make money.”
