About Iowa Homeless Youth Centers


1219 Buchanan, Des Moines, IA 50316, US

Mission Statement

The Iowa Homeless Youth Centers works to eliminate homelessness among children, youth, and young mothers in Polk County. We believe, with support and assistance, homeless individuals and families can live independently and attain self-sufficiency.


IHYC offers a variety of programs and facilities that will teach homeless youth to live independently and become self-sufficient. The youth we serve are non-system involved, meaning that they are not placed or directly supported by a governmental payment agency. IHYC is often a last resort for older runaway and homeless youth who have exhausted community resources, family and friends.
