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.

Residential Program Manager
Hosea Youth Services and Saint Vincent de Paul Society of Lane County (SVDP) partnered together in 2016 to develop a youth home for homeless or at-risk girls who are between the ages of 16-18 and are attending high school in the Lane County area. SVDP is operating as the property manager and is responsible for the renovation and upkeep of the physical property. HYS has agreed to provide the day-to-day services that the house will need, which entails developing a daily structure and framework, as well as the provision of house staff.
For the home’s programming structure, HYS has developed an Independent Living Program, which is geared towards teaching the home’s residents how to be successful as an independent adult after they’ve graduated high school and left the house. HYS is looking to hire a female Residential Program Manager (RPM) to help oversee the daily implementation of this program. A complete overview of the RPM’s daily and monthly responsibilities can be viewed in the job description; however, a brief outline is as follows: schedule development and implementation, staff and residential training, and general oversight ensuring that program’s structure and classes are being successfully implemented and maintained.
