Youth House: 16-18
We are thrilled to announce a new housing opportunity for homeless or at-risk youth ages 16-18 in Lane County who are looking to improve their current circumstances and develop their independence-based skills. Through education, community building, mentorship, and resume building opportunities, residents in the Youth Home will learn how to successfully transition out of homelessness and into sustainable and independent adulthood. When helping develop the initial program for the youth home our ultimate goal was to equip residents with the skills, knowledge, and resources needed to maintain a life away from the streets, once they’ve transition out of the house.

This housing project was an incredible joint effort between Hosea Youth Services, St. Vincent de Paul, Direction Service Inc., and school liaisons. The Youth House grand opening was in January of 2018 and youth officially moved in May of 2018.  The primary goal of the Youth Home is to provide 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. In the initial launch of this new Youth Home HYS provided a Residential Program Manager, Direct Care Staff, and a live in Residential Assistant. We partnered with Direction Service Inc. to provide a Wraparound program for each individual youth to help ensure their success while in the home. In December of 2018 we successfully helped SVDP transition into the management of the Youth Home as HYS is launching into housing for at-risk and homeless young women ages 18-24.

Housing without mentorship eliminates any room for improvement. That is why mentorship will be a vital piece of our 18-24 Independent Living Housing Program. Click the button below to inquire about becoming a mentor, and select “Housing Mentor” from the list of interests.
