Daybreak’s emergency shelter provides youth with physical safety and emotional support in addition to a variety of other services.
Our shelter is open 24 hours a day, seven days a week for youth ages 10 to 21. We provide youth with a safe place to sleep, three meals a day, and nutritious snacks. We also provide personal care items, clothing, and bus fare for transportation to school and/or work.
In addition to basic necessities, Daybreak provides shelter youth with individual, family, and group counseling. Youth enrolled in school attend their home school, and we work to enroll those not in school.
Other services Daybreak provides include anger management training, violence prevention education, drug/alcohol/tobacco prevention, life skills training, supervised computer lab time, tutoring, and structured positive recreational activities. We also work with them to set goals for future employment. Overall, we work with them to become responsible adults.
