ORGANIZATION: ARIZONA YOUTH PARTNERSHIP
Please visit the new page to apply.
Caring adults with an extra bedroom can be the difference in a young person’s life. Help end homelessness in a tangible way, become a Host Home for a young person in need.
Arizona Youth Partnership’s Starting Out Right for Homeless Parenting Youth Program matches pregnant and parenting youth (ages 16-21) who are at risk of becoming homeless with a caring host home within their community. Host homes provide safe housing and support to young families as they work toward becoming stable and self-sufficient with training and support from our case managers.
Host Home Eligibility:
- 25 years or older
- Has a spare bedroom
- Owns or leases a home
- Has homeowners or renter’s insurance
- Passes background and reference checks
- Ability to secure an Arizona fingerprint clearance card
- Lives in Gila, Maricopa, Mohave, Navajo, Pima or Yavapai Counties

Arizona Youth Partnership builds solid foundations for youth and families by partnering with Arizona communities to prevent and solve local issues such as substance abuse, youth homelessness, lack of educational opportunities, teen pregnancy, and challenging family dynamics.
AZYP provides a combination of relationship education, afterschool programs and youth leadership programs. Our programs equip youth to focus on setting goals and prevent teen pregnancy, alcohol and substance abuse and anti-social behaviours. Over the past 20 years, AZYP has grown to serve 28 school districts across 11 counties in Arizona with funding from the Arizona Department of Health Services and Federal grants from the Administration of Children and Families. Our youth programs include the following: Wake UP!(tm) Alcohol & Drug Prevention Education Program, Healthy Relationship Education using Choosing The Best and Teen Outreach Program curricula funded by the Arizona Department of Health Services, Classroom and afterschool programs using Botvin’s LifeSkills Training and Positive Action curricula, and a 21 day shelter for homeless youth in Kingman funded by the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services, Administration for Children. In early 2019, Arizona Youth Partnership integrated the programs of Teen Outreach Pregnancy Services, a Tucson based non profit and we now provide education and support services for pregnant and parenting teens.
