Volunteers of America of Los Angeles provides housing and supportive services for homeless youth including LGBTQ, sexually exploited/sex trafficked, runaways and kids that have aged out of foster care and/or were previously incarcerated. Housing can be short-term or long-term, depending on the needs of the youth. These youth are amazingly resilient. The services that we provide to them at this stage in their lives will help move from the inevitable path of homelessness and incarceration and onto a path of self-sufficiency and self-confidence.
