With our 24 hour hotline and intake available 24/7, our Emergency Shelter is here when most needed. Youth can stay up to 21 days, with beds available in the shelter at the LOFT, or in vetted host homes which typically serve kids under 16.
At intake, youth fill out an application for housing at the LOFT, and learn about the rules and expectations of emergency shelter and the transitional living program. A stay may be a period of respite while working through family conflict. For others it’s a break from the hazards of life on the street, allowing kids a little time to think through their options. Emergency shelter also serves as a probationary period for kids who transition from Street Outreach or our Basic Program into longer term Transitional Living at the LOFT.
