Emergency Youth Shelter

Our Donald W. Reynolds Caring Center provides temporary and emergency shelter to abused and homeless youth that are in DHS or OJA custody. Each of our 10 beds serves an average of 15 children each year. The maximum stay is 30 days.  150 youth ranging in ages from infancy through 17 years old resided in our shelter last year. In addition to safety, security and food, they receive health screenings, counseling, academic and living skills education and recreational opportunities. In a crisis situation, parents may utilize the shelter for their children for up to 48 hours which can be the critical time they need to gain a new perspective. We are also a designated runaway center. Our counseling services can be accessed as necessary and often make the difference on the path to healing and recovery.

Population(s) Served

Our Foster Care program started 3 years ago and has been a huge success. While it is common for children in the system to be moved to multiple homes,Youth & Family Services has a 93% success rate, which includes no disruptions for children until reunited with a family member or adopted. 
And 100% of our foster families say they feel supported and are happy with the services they receive. Our vision is that all children who leave our shelter are matched with a loving family and feel loved and supported throughout their experience. Our groundbreaking continuum model serves homeless, neglected and abused children. Foster Parents are given the opportunity to volunteer in our Emergency Shelter or provide a traditional, respite or shelter host home. Our success is a result of the seamless connections we make between the shelter and the loving environment provided by our foster families. Families are recruited from within a 40 mile radius of our agency.
