About

Peace for the Streets by Kids from the Streets is a resource center and shelter for young adults experienceing homelessness. Founded by the young adults it serves, PSKS operates on a model of low barrier, community oriented services that foster empowerment and opportunity. The population of PSKS is roughly 50% LGBTQ identified, and is the only shelter to allow pets.


Here's where you come in: We are in the process of addressing the health needs of our participant community. Our goal is to have a healthcare professional (or soon to be professional) in the center to provide basic first aid and consultation. Due to our facilities, extensive care is not possible, but referral to other providers is possible, and can be facilitated by volunteers.

We are looking for dedicated volunteers to be in our drop in center once a week, and in our night shelter once a week. The schedule is very flexible, and will accomodate your availability. Ideally, you will only have to be responsible for one daytime OR one evening shift per month or week.
