we believe everyone has potential
Choices for Youth is committed to building programs, systems, and opportunities that are focused on providing individualized support for young people, celebrating who they are, and working together to unlock their potential to build a brighter future.
Childhood trauma, mental illness, addictions, incarceration, family breakdown, poverty, violence, abuse, and exploitation are the tragic set of common experiences of the over 1500 young people we work with every year.
For these youth, the average age of their first
experience with homelessness is just 16.
