SAFE SHELTER

Daybreak operates the region’s only emergency shelter, open 24/7, for youth ages 10 to 21. Daybreak provides shelter, food, clothing, counseling, safety, and stability to more than 300 youth each year.

Housing

Daybreak’s housing program is the region’s only program designed to move homeless youth ages 18 to 24 out of homelessness, poverty, under-education, and crisis and into housing, financial independence, educational achievement, and self-sufficiency.

Drop-In Center

Daybreak’s drop-in center serves youth ages 18 to 24 who are couch-hopping, in danger of losing housing, living on the street, or staying in an adult shelter. Daybreak provides these youth with food, clothing, a place to shower and do laundry, hygiene items, and case management while helping them find a safe place to live.

Open weekdays from 9 a.m. – 4 p.m., the Drop-In Center is located inside Daybreak’s main building at 605 S. Patterson Blvd.

Employment

Daybreak’s employment program helps Daybreak youth develop the skills necessary to get and keep jobs. In addition, youth have the opportunity to participate in the evidence-based program called Supported Employment, Individual Placement and Support to find the best match for their employment preferences. Lindy’s Bakery, Daybreak’s gourmet dog treat bakery and transitional job program, provides Daybreak youth with the opportunity to gain valuable work experience in a supportive environment.
