Are you homeless and age 17-23? Apply for housing with us. A limited number of apartments are available. While you are with us, we will teach you skills to increase your independence, help you find a job and finish your education, and connect you to lots of services. Even when there is a waiting list, we can still help you with jobs, skills, and education.
