Make a Difference
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.

Take a Tour
We want to invite you to learn more about our work by taking a tour of our mission. Usually, we do our agency tours at one of our programs, but we are currently limiting visitors because of COVID. The great news is you can take a tour from the comfort of your own home!
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.
Donate to Youth Focus
Youth Focus is funded through a combination of local/state/federal partnerships and private donations. As the funding landscape continues to evolve, we become increasingly dependent on the financial support of the local community we serve. Additionally, many of the funds that Youth Focus brings to Guilford County from state and federal resources require the local community’s investment.
