A commitment to providing shelter and building life skills to prevent homelessness

Boys & Girls Aid offers three programs focused on preventing homelessness for youth and young adults by providing safety and the opportunity to put long term plans in place. Our programs are designed for young people who are ready to work with our staff in learning life skills for successful independent living. If you, or someone you know, is in a situation where there is a risk of housing insecurity, we are here to help. 

Our Safe Place shelter in Washington County is a 24/7 drop-in program where youth can access essential services while longer-term housing is found. The Compass program supports youth aging out of the foster care system by providing services to help them during this transition; youth are referred to the program though the Department of Human Services (DHS). The Transitional Living Program supports young adults who face housing instability or homelessness by providing services that enable them to become self-sufficient; youth are able to self-refer to this program.
