With generous friends and community partners, our dedicated staff provides youth with relentless support, unconditional love, and absolute respect.


Open Intake

We are open 24/7, 365 days per year.
No one is turned away.

There’s always room for one more.

Unconditional Love

Unconditional love
is a catalyst for healing.

If not us, who? If not now, when?

Absolute Respect

Every single one is unique, and
beautiful, and brave.

We are so proud of them.

For I was hungry and you gave me something to eat, I was thirsty and you gave me something to drink, I was a stranger and you invited me in, I needed clothes and you clothed me, I was sick and you looked after me…

Matthew 25:35-36
