The Homeless Youth Resource Center is a service hub that provides safe refuge, support services to meet immediate and long-term needs, and comprehensive educational and vocational training programs.

Critical health and wellness services will be provided on site by the 14 partner agencies contributing resources to the project. These services include physical health care, mental health care, substance abuse counseling, legal services, anti-trafficking intervention, sexual assault services, and HIV/STI testing.
