Street Outreach Program

The Street Outreach Program (SOP) is sparsley funded by the Department of Health and Human Services and the Department of Human Services and individual donations. The program provides both street-based and drop in services to youth ages 12-20 to assist this population in making a transition from life on the streets to a life of independence and self-sufficiency. Staff can provide youth with hygiene, first aid, safer sex kits, information and resources. Through street-based services, providing educational, supportive services and basic needs, youth will be able to utilize FYI services. These include access to emergency shelter, drop-in center services, counseling and food. The Refuge provides a safe setting in which youth can congregate and utilize a spectrum of services. Youth can do homework, enjoy recreational activities, get something to eat, get help with job seeking skills or get clothing if in need. Free counseling with a Masters level therapist is also available off site. The Refuge is open Tuesday and Thursdays 3:30 pm to 8:30 pm.
