Small Teams of trained volunteers venture to homeless encampments with a goal to protect young people from the damaging effects of street life. The program promotes efforts by its grantees to build relationships between street outreach workers and runaway, homeless, and street youth.
Mentorship matches a knowledgeable adult with lived experience. Peer mentors are used for health and lifestyle changes, have one-on-one sessions, and a chance to learn from those who have recovered, or rehabilitated, following such an experience.
Community Members host a youth in their homes, providing a safe place out of the street environment to work toward their goals and a sustainable lifestyle.
