How Youth Focus Serves the Triad

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.

Emergency Housing

Act Together is an emergency housing facility for male, female and gender nonconforming youth who have runaway, are experiencing a family crisis, are the victims of abuse or neglect, or are homeless for other reasons. 

Supportive Housing

This program provides rent assistance for homeless youth ages 18-24 in independent apartments with a lease in his or her name. While enrolled, these young adults will receive  help build independent living skills.

Outpatient Counseling

Safe Haven Outpatient Counseling provides free counseling to youth ages 6 to 24.  This often includes victims of physical violence, bullying, sexual assault, rape; mental, emotional, physical and sexual abuse, or neglect; and youth who have been a witness to domestic violence or local gang violence.

Safe Place

Youth Focus participates in Safe Place, a national youth outreach and prevention program for young people in need of immediate help and safety. Safe Place locations throughout Guilford County are easily recognized by at-risk youth with their vibrant yellow signs.

Transitional Living

Youth Focus offers supportive housing to young adults who find themselves homeless for a variety of reasons and require additional assistance to gain needed independent living skills so they can successfully support themselves.

Maternity Housing

My Sister Susan’s House offers transitional housing to pregnant women between the ages of 16 and 21. 

The scariest thing you can do this Halloween is not to support local youth.

We’d like to take a moment to thank GRAWL. Our community has so many wonderful non-profits and we’re grateful to have their support. 

GRAWL is asking you to make a $15/per person donation to participate in the event.  If you are making a registration donation for more than just yourself, please indicate the number of additional people you are covering through your registration donation in the comment section.  (If you would like for them to receive log-in instructions directly, please include their first name, last name, and email address. Otherwise, you will need to forward log-in information once you receive it. ) 

Registration donations are not considered a “charitable” gift but GRAWL is generously donating registration proceeds to Youth Focus.
So every $15 you spend to be a part of the event is going towards youth in our community.  Additional gifts are always welcomed and will go a long way in helping us meet our fundraising goal for Act Together.  Any gift above the registration donation would be considered a charitable gift for tax purposes.
