Our Programs

Youth Oasis operates three programs that provide support services for at-risk youth and young adults. These programs aim to break the cycle of homelessness in our community and in turn, throughout our state.

 

Youth Center

Provides emergency shelter, food, clothing, counseling and healthcare referrals for youth ages 10-17. The goal of this program is to reunite young people with their families or locate appropriate alternative placements.

Transition Center

Serving young adults ages 18-25, this program is designed to help participants transition out of care and into adult life. Residents of the center pay a minimum amount in rent and utilities and receive: career and life-skills training, counseling, case management, and GED assistance.

Diversity House

Geared towards the specific needs of homeless and at-risk LGBTQ+ individuals, Diversity House provides transitional housing, intensive case management, support services, and an affirming, safe environment for youth ages 16-21 who identify on the LGBTQ+ spectrum. For more information, click here
