You CAN do it by yourself! You don't have to do it alone. We're here to help.


Drop-In Services

Daytime/drop-in services are available to all youth ages 12-18, every day, from 6:30am to 8pm. These services include access to food, clothing, hygiene items, laundry facilities, computer lab, case management and therapy, connection to medical care, and a variety of life skills classes and groups. Food bags and sack lunches are provided for youth to take whenever needed.

Meals offered daily at 6:30am, 12pm, and 5pm with soups and snacks available all day.

Emergency Shelter

Residential emergency shelter is open 24/7 for youth ages 12-18. Youth are assigned a bed and a locker for the duration of their stay.

Case Management

Case Management is a support system that helps the youth set goals, coordinate with appropriate resources and track progress toward their success.


Transportation is crucial for the youth to attend school, extracurricular activites and maintain employment. We provide bus tokens, bus passes and can assist with transportation.


Therapy is available to any youth in shelter, including: individual, group, and family therapy.

Continuum of Care for Shelter Services

Continuum of Care for Shelter Services

Continuum of Care

Youth Future's overall programming is divided into three main areas: overnight shelter, drop-in services and street outreach. Each program area has specific components to meet the needs of youth in need in the following categories:

1) Outreach
2) Crisis Response
3) Intervention
4) Aftercare

One of our goals, whenever possible, is to reunite the youth with their family.

The Youth Futures Shelter

Youth Futures provides a home-like setting with 16 beds available in three rooms for youth ages 12-18 needing emergency and temporary shelter. Youth are assigned to a room with their same gender that contains bunk-beds, linens and wardrobe lockers for personal items. The facility also includes a kitchen, multi-purpose/dining area, a living room, a family room, computer lab, a single-use bathroom and outside courtyard (within a fenced area). The front and back doors have entry which is controlled by staff members.

Intensive case management is offered to help youth become re-united with family or self-sufficiently contributing to our community. Our programs connect each youth, on an individual basis, with resources to build the skills that are needed to support a healthy future. Transportation is provided for the youth to attend school, employment, and extracurricular activities. We provide bus tokens, bus passes, and transportation via van.

The shelter is open 24 hours per day, with drop-in hours available from 6:30am to 8pm.
