Description: Good Seed Shelter provides temporary housing to Transition Age Youth (TAY) ages 18-25 years old who are also in need of mental health services. These young men not only need a warm bed, but they also need guidance to help navigate the complicated, and often confusing social services network. Our clients are challenged with chronic homelessness, mental health diagnoses and disabilities, as well as minor physical and learning disabilities.

After an initial screening, clients receive assistance in obtaining medical and mental health services in addition to receiving assistance with financial matters, food access, and education or job preparation and referrals as appropriate. In partnership with the Los Angeles County Department of Mental Health, clients receive intense case management to secure permanent housing, drug and alcohol counseling, and program services to further support clients and guide them towards success.

Volunteers Requests by Good Seed Shelter - Transition Age Youth: There are over 3,959 homeless youth on the streets of Los Angeles on any given day. In a large metropolis, with numerous outlets for unproductive and illegal activity, young people are often at a loss to find adequate support and guidance to redirect their lives. Too old for child specific services, and not old enough to have stable sources of support, many youth find themselves unoccupied, homeless and without a clear sense of direction. Mental health problems complicate matters if they lack health insurance and their families support, often struggling to make ends meet, are stretched to provide adequate care.
