Services will include emergency shelter, food and clothing for up to 21 days, counseling and support services, referrals, and aftercare-all within a Culturally Responsive, Trauma Informed, and Positive Youth Development framework. The ultimate goal of this facility is to provide kids with an option beside couch surfing, what can be unsafe, and to keep kids out of the state foster care when possible.

This includes cleaning supplies, tape, tarps, rent for power washers, paint brushes and rollers and miscellaneous tools etc. It is estimated that we will need about 18 gallons of paint to include primer, paint for the soffits and paint for the trim.
