Crisis Care

Many times the homeless youth who come through our open door have immediate needs. For them we have Crisis Care, a program designed to specifically for their physical well-being, including medical care, hot showers, clean clothes, nourishing meals and a safe bed. First, we heal the body. Then, we heal the person.

The PJ Garcia Youth Center is our crisis shelter, a residential program staffed 365 days a year. The light is always on. It is the front line, providing services to homeless youth ages 18-21. The Center is designed to assist youth in immediate need of housing and crisis intervention. The shelter provides necessities to youth for up to 30 days (extension possible).

Clients undergo a thorough assessment which identifies areas of need, including any mental health and/or substance abuse treatment necessary, medical attention required, and/or educational and vocational needs. The findings become the basis for the development of each individual client's specific case plan.
