Our young people are among the most damaged in our community. Thanks to you, they are receiving the loving care and support they need to begin healing and start building brighter futures.
We provided comprehensive services to 742 youth last year. Our Crisis Center took in 405 young people in desperate need of help. We expanded the number of off-site independent apartments available for individuals and families, including graduates of our Rights of Passage transitional living program. We provided another 297 youth in the community with outreach services including food, water, hygiene packets — and critical counseling. We also provided supportive housing for our chronically mentally ill young people.
60% of our youth come to us from New Orleans, 25% from around Louisiana, and 15% from across the country.
