YouthLink has over 40 years of experience connecting young people ages 16-24 at-risk or experiencing homelessness with a community of resources and support. Whether it’s basic needs, like a hot shower or a warm meal, assistance with employment or educational goals, accessing mental and physical health resources, or finding supportive housing, they help young people at all stages of their journey. Youthlink’s mission is to support and empower young people on their journey to self-reliance.
Food access is incredibly important for young people experiencing homelessness. Very rarely do they have food readily available, especially healthy food. YouthLink provides young people with three hot meals a day, as well as access to their food pantry for anyone who may need it.
