Description: Gateway Youth Services helps youth ages 12 through 20 who lack safe, stable, and age-appropriately supervised housing. This includes youth who:
    Have expressed thoughts of running away
    Have a history of running away from home
    Are experiencing family conflict, abuse, neglect, family poverty, or improper supervision and/or care
    Have been asked to leave home or have been “kicked out” by their parent, legal guardian, or other adult caretaker
    Are "couch-surfing" or moving around from home to home
    Are living on the streets, in camps, or in other places not meant for human habitation including vehicles, abandoned buildings, garages, etc.
    Have parents or legal guardians who are also experiencing homelessness and may be staying in emergency shelters or "doubled up" with other families in overcrowded homes
    Have been unable to maintain independent housing, have been or are being evicted by a landlord or roommate, and do not have the means to secure a safe and stable alternative permanent living location
Gateway Youth Services primary goals are:
    To prevent youth from running away from home by providing supportive services to resolve family conflict.
    To reunify youth who have run away from home with their families whenever family conflict can be safely remedied.
    To identify safe living alternatives for youth when family reunification is not possible or in the best interest of the youth or family.
    To help young people successfully transition from adolescence to independence.
