Description

The Runaway & Homeless Program is part of the Federal initiative to provide shelter and safety to runaway and homeless youth.

Youth in crisis are referred to this program so that intervention and prevention methods can be put into place to assist in improving familial dynamics in the home, or if necessary, intervene with other agencies to ensure the safety of the youth in crisis.

Youth that need intensive and/or protective services are placed in our Group Home for up to 21 days and are provided with the same services and benefits as youth enrolled in The Bridge. 

As part of the Federal grant, Open Arms, Incorporated has a Crisis Line that is manned 24 hours per day allowing any youth in distress a contact number for safety. 

During their time with us, all their necessities are provided, including but not limited to food, clothing, shelter, recreation, job training, advocacy, education, medical attention, and counseling. 

Aftercare Services are offered to clients for up to 6 months.
