About Youth Focus

Youth Focus creates safe places for vulnerable youth in crisis. Programs for youth include a crisis shelter that operates around-the-clock 365 days a year, three supportive housing programs for youth experiencing homelessness, an outpatient counseling program, and the Safe Place program. Sustainable funding is vital to keeping our doors open for youth in crisis, and we depend on financial support from our local community. Funding is provided by government grants, corporations and foundations, and individuals like you.


Volunteer opportunities vary based on our need, and your availability and unique skill set. We are always in need of extra hands with open hearts.


Every donation makes a difference. Youth Focus is funded through a combination of state and federal grants, and private donations.

Spread the Word

Attend or host an event, share a post on social media, invite us to speak at your event, tell a friend or youth in need about the work we do.

We’d like to take a moment to thank Women Impacting Greensboro. Our community has so many wonderful non-profits and we’re grateful for your consideration and contribution.

Volunteer with Us

It takes a village, and Youth Focus is appreciative of any and all community support. Individuals, groups and corporations are all equally appreciated and needed volunteers.

Given the current state and local guidelines for COVID-19, Youth Focus has temporarily suspended all on-site visitors and volunteers. This does NOT include clients or those accompanying clients to appointments. Those coming on-site will be asked to wear a mask for the duration of the appointment and limit the number of accompanying guests. Thank you for your understanding and commitment to the safety of our youth and staff.
