Day shelter helps youth with basic needs and to reconnect with the community. Provides three meals a day, laundry, showers, personal items, and resources. Programs include:

Runaway and Homeless Youth Program (RHY): Connects youth and their families to resources that meet their immediate needs. Also provides mediation and counseling resources for family reunification. The goal is safe exits from the streets, achieved through relationships with local law enforcement, street outreach, and working closely with the school district and other community partners.

Youth Empowerment Program (YEP): YEP's 4 elements are internships and jobs, financial literacy, workshops and field trips, and extended support. Youth cohorts go through the program in 3-month cycles and can earn high school credit for their work and experiences during the program.

Rotary Rides: Bicycle loan program where youth can check out a bicycle for 24 hours to get to appointments, school, etc. Must return bike by 7pm the day after checkout.
