Mission Statement

In partnership with the community, HYC’s mission is to raise awareness and meet the needs of homeless youth so they can stay in school and graduate. HYC’s goal is to provide homeless teens with host families, basic needs and services as they make positive, life-affirming choices toward becoming responsible, productive adults. Together with educators, government agencies, faith-based organizations, and compassionate community members and donors, HYC is helping to bring a positive future to this nearly forgotten population.

Description

HYC is a preventive measure to the potential negative life experiences above. If a homeless youth does not have to worry about where he is going to sleep that night or where his next meal is coming from, he can focus on staying in school and getting his diploma. HYC serves homeless youth ages 13-19 who are attending local high schools. Youth are provided with basic necessities, case management, housing if needed, life skills and mentors to ensure they have the resources to stay in school, complete their education and have a chance at a brighter future.
