Larkin Street Youth Services' Mission is to provide a continuum of services and opportunities that inspire youth to move beyond the streets. We nurture potential, promote dignity, and support bold steps by all.
Larkin Street Youth Services has been committed to helping San Francisco's most vulnerable youth ages 12-24 move beyond street life. This commitment has fueled the development of a comprehensive continuum of services that is nationally recognized as a model of innovative and effective care. We offer stability, safety, and the opportunity for a better life.
Larkin Street's continuum provides a range of housing options-from immediate emergency shelter to permanent supportive housing-in addition to essential wraparound services that offer kids the resources and skills they need to exit street life. Supportive services include education, technology, and employment training; healthcare, including mental health, substance abuse, and HIV servcies; and case management.
Our success rate in helping kids get off the street for good testifies to a simple truth: given safety, shelter, compassion, guidance and enough positive options, kids can find their own solutions. We belive all youth deserve the chance to reach their full potential and contribute their best to the world.
