Outreach services to youth ages 12-18 who are homeless, street involved or at risk of becoming so; including possible sex trade involvement.
Our Reconnect worker seeks out and supports youth who are homeless, struggle with drugs and alcohol, street entrenched and sexually exploited. We support youth by assisting them with getting their basic needs met, addressing their lifestyle, and safety planning. The goal for the Reconnect worker is to assist youth in reconnecting with their family or securing stable and safe housing. Once a youth's basic needs are addressed, they have the capacity to explore options to make healthy and safe lifestyle choices.
Services include help accessing basic necessities such as shelter, food, transportation, and other community resources; and helping to develop long term stability.
