SVDP/HYS Youth House
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.
Saint Vincent de Paul has broken ground on the house! Read the Register Guard article here.
