WE TAKE THE “HOUSING FIRST” APPROACH that prioritizes providing permanent housing to people experiencing homelessness, thus ending their homelessness and serving as a platform from which they can pursue personal goals and improve their quality of life. This approach is guided by the belief that people need basic necessities like food and a place to live before attending to anything less critical, such as getting a job, budgeting properly, or attending to substance use issues. Additionally, Housing First is based on the understanding that client choice is valuable in housing selection and supportive service participation, and that exercising that choice is likely to make a client more successful in remaining housed and improving their life.
We provide shelter options in Yakima, WA: Young Adult Extreme Winter Weather Shelter, Young Adult Emergency Shelter, and the Licensed Youth Emergency Shelter. In Sunnyside, WA we provide the Young Adult Emergency Home.
