Children’s Home & Aid’s Youth Services programs provide temporary emergency shelter, crisis intervention, individual and family counseling, and aftercare services to runaway and homeless youth. When family reunification is not possible, the program will work with youth in arranging alternative housing through either an emergency host home or another temporary living arrangement. Youth Services emergency host homes are licensed foster homes who are willing to provide temporary (up to 21 days) shelter placement to youth with nowhere else to go.
Host homes provide a safe and comfortable environment for the youth to sleep, eat, and stay until a more stable placement can be made.
