Hope House Youth Shelter

We can help.

 Life at home may be really difficult right now but you may want to continue going to school, and continue living your life as best you can. You don’t have to do it alone. Life on the street can be dangerous and put you at risk for some serious harm. At our youth shelter we offer more than a warm meal and a place to sleep at night, we can help you find solutions to the issues you are facing at home. We offer shelter, food and help.

Where to begin

  • Screening and Assignments: We begin by asking you a series of questions to help us gather information about the challenges the young person is facing 
  • Referrals: Traineprofessionals evaluate your concerns and will supply referrals to a suitable provider if necessary. 
  • Temporary Shelter: LSF offers temporary shelter and a safe place to stay until permanent arrangements can be made.   
  • Counseling: Counseling can help a young person with the tools to manage life’s toughest challenges. Master’s level and Licensed Therapists can work as intermediaries to help the family understand why the young person decided to run away, work out an agreement outlining the conditions they need to follow once they return home, and discuss alternative living situations for you while problems are solved. 
  • Case Management: beyond housing and counseling there may still be a need to coordinate referrals to other services as needed, like mental health services, primary care, community activities, mentoring programs, etc.
  • Aftercare/Follow-Up for 60 days: After family reunification is achieved, we check back in to ensure things are going smoothly and ensure everyone is safe.
