Mission Statement

Seed House Project aids and inspires Transitional Age Youth in the Los Angeles area who are experiencing homelessness by providing a success-driven live/work space, access to education, and individualized mentorship.

Description

Seed House Project (SHP) is a 501(c)(3) organization servicing transitional age youth (TAY) who are experiencing homelessness. The TAY community are young people aged 16 to 24 who are aging out of the foster care system or state custody, and experience added challenges developing into adulthood. One of the vulnerabilities the TAY community experiences is homelessness; 20 to 30% of aged-out foster youth experience homelessness. Although statistics surrounding homelessness experienced by youth aged out of the juvenile justice system are more difficult to nail down in the research, studies estimate percentages exceeding 25%.

‚Äč

Since 2014, SHP assists TAY communities experiencing homelessness by providing foundational support for three pillars of successful transition into adulthood: providing a home, supporting job skills training and placement, and creating personalized mentorships. We believe that in addition to providing stable housing and job placement services, it is necessary for these youth to experience one-on-one, personalized, consistent mentorship from a mentor with whom the youth can develop a lasting bond. SHP is committed to inspiring TAY to become healthy, productive adults by providing not only stable and safe housing, education, and employment programs; but also, life skills training, financial literacy, and real-world advice from a one-on-one tailored mentorship experience.
