Street Outreach:

Scott had been living in an adult homeless shelter for three months when he was approached by YMCA Safe Place Service’s Street Outreach worker, Ashley. “She reassured me that things could get better and that I was capable of changing my life.” Each year our Outreach Program touches the lives of over 5,000 young people with information about how to access immediate help.
