The Host Homes/Transitional Living Program of Latin American Youth Center helps homeless and runaway youth between the ages of 12-22 transition from adolescence to a healthy adulthood. The program offers room and board with a local host parent in a secure, respectful, and caring environment. During this period sponsoring host families and individuals, receive a stipend, training, and professional assistance from the LAYC staff.
Host Homes provides emergency, temporary housing for girls and boys 12-17 years old who are homeless and/or have runaway from home. Youth are placed with a host parent for 3 weeks.
Transitional Living helps homeless and runaway youth from ages 16-21 by placing them with a host parent or family for up to 18 months. The youth is assigned a case manager and provided support throughout the duration of the program.
If you space in your home and interested in helping DC youth on a path to healthy adulthood, consider becoming a Host Homes or TLP parent.
