Youth Services for Oklahoma County
Award Date: September 5, 2017
Youth Services for Oklahoma County, Inc. works with young people who are often homeless or couch-homeless, engaged with the child welfare system, disconnected or otherwise at-risk. There are young people in the Oklahoma County community who need a safe and secure transitory place to stay.
The Transition to Success program will focus on the youth served through Youth Services’ Family Junction Emergency Youth Shelter. These teens will have 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.
