YOUTH RESILIENT PROJECT
In Texas alone, over 230,000 youth and young adults are currently experiencing homelessness.
By providing Rapid-Rehousing (RRH) assistance to Youth and Young Adults (YYA) between 18-24 years of all self-identified genders in the Bexar County area, we seek to reduce the number of youth experiencing homelessness. Our goal is to provide this deserving population with a safe place to live and opportunities to reach their potential, allowing them to heal from trauma and prevent eviction.
Our Case Managers will work with youth and young adults in the program to:
- Find permanent housing
- Obtain mental health counseling, parenting education, employment assistance, educational services, life skills training, mentorship, and childcare
- Access basic needs such as food, clothing, and medical care
