About

For twenty years Peace for the Streets by Kids from the Streets (PSKS) has been making a difference in the lives of homeless youth and young adults. We offer basic needs, case management, overnight shelter, education, and employment skills development to youth and young adults.

Each year with the help of volunteers we serve over 5,000 hot and nutritious meals every Monday, Wednesday and Friday between the hours of 12 PM to 3 PM during our drop in center. If you are able to make a commitment between 11:30 AM and 3:15 PM on a Monday, Wednesday or Friday to help serve prepared meals come join us in making life a little easier for homeless youth and adults.

Since many of our participants come from historically marginalized communities (communities of color, LGBTQ, disabled and women) it is important that our volunteers be committed to creating a safe, nonjudgmental and supportive space for every participant who walks through our doors. Roughly half of the participants we serve identify as LGBTQ, a distinction that we celebrate within the greater community of service providers.
