Shelter and Housing Resources
Young Men’s House
HYS currently offers housing to men ages 18 to 24 in a duplex setting. For youth 18 or older, education can be a primary focus of their housing, but this ultimately transitions into a need for stable employment. In this program, participants are required to be enrolled in school or pursuing and obtaining employment. This house provides accountability and support to residents as they pursue their requirements and goals.
SVDP/HYS Youth House: December 2017
This housing project will be a joint effort between Hosea Youth Services, St. Vincent de Paul and school liaisons with the primary goal of providing homeless and at-risk students ages 16 to 18 with the secure housing, casework, mentoring and other resources they need to stay in high school until graduation. HYS will provide management and social services to the house, including but not limited to a Resident Property Manager and Non-Resident Services Coordinator.
This program has been designed to help teach, guide and train youth with the hope that when these youth leave our home they will feel confident in their abilities to live independently and successfully as adults.
Young Ladies’ House: Fall 2017
HYS is slated to open our young ladies’ house in the Fall of 2017 to compliment our young men’s housing that is currently available. This housing program will be available to youth ages 18 to 24. For youth 18 or older, education can be a primary focus of their housing, but this ultimately transitions into a need for stable employment. In this program, participants will be required to be enrolled in school or pursuing and obtaining employment. This house will provide accountability and support to residents as they pursue their requirements and goals.
We have provided housing in a number of ways since Hosea began including overnight stays in area churches coordinated by Hosea staff and volunteers.
HYS has staffed and maintained a house for guys, then a house for gals. We have worked with local churches to provide shelter every night, and even housed young people at the Drop-In Center.
In recent years, we have provided shelter during the winter as a partner with the Egan Warming Center when the weather was below freezing and exposure or risk of freezing to death was greatest.
Providing Comfort and Growth: A young woman who utilized our shelter for almost a year wrote, “Hosea Youth Services changed my life, changed everything about it. I was broke, and I was broken! Hosea was there with love, support, a bed, and nourishment both physically and spiritually. It was a place of comfort and growth. They helped me grasp a new life walking with Jesus. Finally I am living my dream, going to school to get my CNA and will soon be going to college. I would like to thank everyone who has made it possible for me to live the life I have today. ~Whitney
