Youth Shelters is the only organization in the Santa Fe area dedicated to helping homeless, runaway, and at-risk young people. The work that we do makes an enormous difference in changing lives and maybe even saving lives. The agency’s programs have gained respect locally and nationally as some of the most effective (and cost-effective) work with youth anywhere.
It is difficult work, and it costs money. In these times of drastically diminishing federal and state resources, it is doubly important for our community to come to the aid of those who are least able to help themselves—our children and the children of our neighbors.
There’s nothing in this world more rewarding than making a difference in the life of a young person.
Your generosity will help us to continue providing a continuum of services to homeless, runaway and at-risk youth, including street outreach, emergency shelter, transitional housing, counseling and life skills development. The impact on the 1,000 young people we serve a year is great. For us it means hungry kids eat, homeless children have shelter and perhaps most important of all it means that kids can acquire the life skills they need to fulfill their tremendous potential. Success is ensured by people like you who lend their good hearts to shaping our community’s future.
