  • Stay Duration: Up to 90 days; longer stays require approval.
  • Safety: Our shelters are open 24/7/365. We are not a locked facility; youth may leave anytime, but are encouraged to stay until a safe, stable exit is possible.

House Expectations:
  • Our shelters are a safe space. We provide a safe environment where all identities are respected and hate has no place.
  • We do allow phones, but with limited hours, guardian approval required.
  • We do not allow smoking or vaping onsite.
  • We ask everyone to participate in programming based on need and ability.
  • Alternate Placement: If we are not able to meet a youth's needs, we may ask for your help to find a more suitable place.
  • Confidentiality: Your privacy is essential. We will not share private information, however we are mandated reporters that are required to report child or vulnerable adult abuse, if we believe a person’s life is in danger, or if we think a person may be a danger to others.
