Streetwork Project

A program to serve homeless youth and help them find stability. No judgement, just options.

Many homeless young people face a day-to-day struggle to survive which can lead to physical and emotional harm.

Homeless youth may have experienced family abuse, violence, rejection, and instability that led to their homelessness. We work with homeless and street-involved young people up to age 25 to help them find stability.

Streetwork Project does this work in welcoming Drop-In Centers, at our overnight shelter and through our street outreach teams.

Drop-In Centers

Streetwork Project operates Drop-In Centers where youth experiencing homelessness can socialize in a safe non-judgmental place. In the Drop-Ins, young people can get help with:

  • Daily necessities such as meals, showers, clothing, wellness activities
  • Medical care
  • Legal assistance
  • Mental health services
  • Sexual health help including HIV prevention materials and testing
  • Obtaining identification
  • Obtaining public benefits
  • Linkages to emergency shelter
  • Housing advocacy

Streetwork Overnight

Youth experiencing homelessness who are seeking shelter can be referred from one of the Drop-In Centers. See below for Drop-In Center locations.

Street Outreach

Many street-involved youth remain hidden in plain sight. Our Outreach teams drive around the city to places where young people gather. We bring snacks and other supplies to help young people on the street while offering information about options and services.
