FOCUS offers a range of services for homeless LGBTQ+ youth ages 14-24 years old. Many of our services are offered to the youth within our shelter, and others are available to the greater community.
We offer a place to call home for youth who no longer have a primary residence for whatever reason. During our first few years in operation, we will only have transitional housing for youth ages 18-24.
Whether it is obtaining a GED, attending a trade school, community college, or a 4-year college/university, our youth determine their educational goals and we guide them through the process. We assist with school research, applications, and application fees.
We listen to the job interests of our youth and assist them with developing transferable skills. Youth will engage in resume building, mock interviews, and financial planning.
