Description: Youth In Need's Emergency Shelter is a 12-bed emergency residential center for male and female children and teens, ages 10-18, who are in crisis. Continuously in operation since 1974, Youth In Need has developed a comprehensive temporary shelter services program, structured to meet the unique needs of each child and teen. Youth In Need's Emergency Shelter program provides a safe haven from abuse, a 'family timeout' to provide a cooling off period during a time of intense family conflict and shelter for homeless children and teens. Youth In Need meets the basic needs of housing, food and safety while providing counseling and other support services to help youth re-unite with their families, when appropriate, or find an alternative living situation.

The Emergency Shelter offers individual, family and group counseling, crisis intervention and case management services and daily educational groups.

Eligibility, Enrollment and Cost
Participation in the program is voluntary, and the program is free to participants. Children and teens must be between the ages of 10 and 19 to enroll. Enrollment intakes are scheduled via the 24-Hour Help Line or on a walk-in basis at the Emergency Shelter. During the enrollment assessment, Youth In Need staff will provide the child or teen with their immediate needs, explain the program, services and participation requirements and secure voluntary commitment from the child or teen to participate in the program.

Many of these shelters now have waiting lists. Please call before going to them. Many waiting lists are very long. Shelters and service also go out of business. Always call ahead to confirm that this location is still active. If you find that this location is no longer operating, please send us a comment using the form below.
