Pivot, A Turning Point for Youth, works with young people who are often homeless or couch-homeless, engaged with the child welfare system, disconnected or otherwise at-risk. The Transition to Success program is focused on the youth served through Pivot’s Family Junction Emergency Youth Shelter (“Family Junction”.) Teens are provided clean, warm beds and nutritious meals; counseling and emotional support; treatment for health issues; ability to attend school and get tutoring; life skills training and practice; vocational opportunities; recreational and socialization activities; and most importantly, the continuity of care with trauma informed staff that are engaged and invested in the youth they care for every day.
