Safe Stay Program

Our Safe Stay program offers a transitional home for vulnerable, homeless young women ages 18-24. Our program empowers our residents to identify, develop, and achieve goals in the areas of education, employment, access to services, financial matters, support systems, nutrition, and interpersonal skills. Our program’s mission is to stop the cycle of poverty, giving the next generation the chance for a safe, full, meaningful life.
