Salvation Army The Way In Drop In Shelter For Youth

Residential Facility
The Way In's residential facility houses up to 8 males between 18-21 years of age. These beds are for homeless youth who either left home or came to the Center through referrals from other agencies. The goal of the residential program is to help establish a long-term foundation for each youth to successfully live healthy, sustained lives, while the shelter attempts to identify and satisfy the immediate needs of the youths.

Independent Living Program
The Way In's Independent Living Program provides apartments for youth ages 18-21, and allows them to experience the independence of being an adult with the helping hand we all need when starting out. This twenty-bed, alcohol and drug-free program is designed for at-risk youth of legal age with no family or options available to help them to become independent and self-sufficient. During their up to eighteen-month stay, residents are required to continue high school, pursue further education, or enroll in vocational training. They also attend weekly counseling and case management sessions, participate in life skills training and attend bi-weekly house meetings. Residents receive training in job skills and are aided in securing and maintaining employment. Clients pay 30% rent and all of their utilities are provided for free. Clients also pay into a savings program while they are residents, which they are given control of upon exit from the program.

Additional community services

Clothing - On a daily basis, members of the community can peruse clothing donations received by The Way In clothing storage.
Food - The Way In provides referrals to local pantries and food banks. Additionally, through a partnership with a local bakery, The Way in distributes bagels to the community each Thursday.
Referrals - Members of the community can receive referrals to other agencies in order to receive additional services as needed.
