1736 Family Crisis Center

Our Emergency Youth Shelter is licensed by the California Community Care Licensing Division. It is open to any runaway, homeless, or throwaway teenager (ages 10-17) who agrees to abide by the rules and participate in the program. The program is set up to help young people deal with past personal issues, such as anger or drug use. We also make clear the dangers of street living. All of this is done to help direct them toward positive and productive life paths. From the earliest moments of intake, a complete plan is designed by each participant with staff help. This ensures that the time (generally two weeks) in the shelter can be used effectively. A comprehensive scope of services are provided by the program and range from the basics of food and clothing to the more complex like individual and group counseling, medical services, legal help and long-term safety plans. After a participant graduates from the Youth Shelter, our goal is to make sure that the youth exit into safe, long-term housing, whether that is reunification with their parents or another appropriate arrangement. A six-month aftercare follow-up period is also in place so that staff can stay in touch to provide whatever support a they might need to stay on track.The program is completely voluntary, and teenagers typically have an excellent experience in the program due to the goal-oriented, supportive environment
