Young Adult Program


Resident of Project HOME's Young Adult Program

With support and collaboration from local experts in young adult programming, Project HOME provides LGBTQ-friendly permanent housing and support services for young adults at risk of homelessness as a foundation to achieve their long-term goals for housing, education, and employment.

Project HOME’s young adult program is one of three main components of our initiative to end and prevent chronic street homelessness. National research shows that vulnerable young adults and youth – especially those transitioning from foster care, those who identify LGBTQ, and those that are homeless living in shelter or other unstable housing situations – comprise one of the largest and fastest-growing groups of homeless individuals. We believe that with interventions to stabilize, educate, employ, and empower these young adults, we can prevent them from becoming a steady stream into the homeless system.

Toward that end, we will work with partners to identify and serve young adults who may be appropriate candidates for housing opportunities at Project HOME. To ensure these services appropriately meet the unique needs of participants, our young adult residents are encouraged to provide ongoing feedback and evaluation of programming.
