Family Connections Center Inc was founded after a chance encounter with a youth in need of housing assistance.
This meeting sparked a partnership with the South Dakota Youth Action Board, a group of remarkable young leaders dedicated to addressing youth housing insecurities in our community and state.
Together, we strive to empower and support vulnerable youth in overcoming housing insecurities.
Our mission is to strengthen and empower youth and young adults, to overcome obstacles by providing housing, supportive counseling, community education, and advocacy.
We envision a community where all youth, and young adults, inclusive of all intersecting identities, are supported, equal, and thriving.
We recognize thriving as a community means all youth, and young adults, inclusive of all intersecting identities, orientation, gender, race, ethnicity, culture, age, ability status, class, faith, and social characteristics are equal.
As a nonprofit, we seek to fill gaps in South Dakota, primarily the Rapid City area, as a youth and young adult Drop-In and Transitional Housing Center, with supportive services, prevention, education and community advocacy.
The Circle, Drop-In Center offers Supportive Services by appointment from 8a-5p daily, and Drop-In Social Activities for youth from 1p-8p daily. Book an appointment below or call for assistance.
