Brief Resource Summary

Safe Shelter

Daybreak operates the region’s only emergency shelter, open 24/7, for youth ages 10 to 21. Daybreak provides shelter, food, clothing, counseling, safety, and stability to more than 300 youth each year.


Daybreak’s housing program is the region’s only program designed to move homeless youth ages 18 to 24 out of homelessness, poverty, under-education, and crisis and into housing, financial independence, educational achievement, and self-sufficiency.


Daybreak’s street outreach program serves youth ages 18 to 24 who are couch-hopping, living on the street, or staying in an adult shelter. Daybreak provides these youth with food, a place to shower and do laundry, hygiene items, and case management while helping them find a safe place to live.
