AT LEAST 4.2 MILLION YOUNG PEOPLE EXPERIENCE A FORM OF HOMELESSNESS IN A YEAR.
Coming late January early February 2023, the Drop-In and Transitional Housing Center, ‘The Circle’, is a much-needed bridge of support for youth ages 16-24 to help address obstacles, provide support, and assist youth at risk of, or experiencing homelessness.
Not only does The Circle provide support services to youth, it also is a social/emotional place to connect with other youth and enjoy fun activities! Activities are for all youth, not just those experiencing housing insecurities.
The Circle is a safe space where all can flourish and have fun!
The Circle serves youth ages 16–24 who are experiencing literal homelessness, imminent risk of homelessness, or fleeing domestic violence.
The Circle is an important access point for coordinated entry and offers toilets, showers, laundry facilities, food, and food vouchers, telephone, access to internet and technology, job search and training assistance, warm referrals to community resources, healthcare referral, education opportunities, trauma informed staff, with Peer Youth Navigator services.
The Circle is a youth homeless response system that is more personalized and caring, with in-person assistance from trained staff who are available, relatable, knowledgeable, responsive, non-judgmental, and supportive, with Drop-In Center and Transitional Housing on site.
A safe, consistent, sober space, not just available Monday to Friday, also on weekends and holidays too. The Drop-In and Transitional Housing Center is open 7 days per week, 365 days per year in order to best serve youth in need.
We anticipate opening late January or early February 2023. The Drop-In Center will be housed a former church, 8,000 square feet, with Transitional Housing in an additional 2016 square feet. The property is almost an acre and has opportunity to meet the needs of youth and young adults.
