Ignite offers a comprehensive continuum of services to young people between the ages of 14 to 26 who are unstably housed or experiencing homelessness. Beyond meeting youth's immediate needs, our services provide youth with all the tools and support they need to succeed: stable housing; access to employment and education opportunities; primary and mental health care; lasting connections with caring adults, and the skills to live a healthy and independent life.
We work with each young person individually to help them overcome trauma and hopelessness, while working toward becoming a self-sufficient adult. Our holistic model includes transitional and independent living options, as well as community-based programming to connect with and support youth in crisisall trauma-informed, evidence-based, and culturally sensitive.
