HOME YOUTH AND RESOURCE CENTER

H.O.M.E. Youth and Resource Center

is a combined day shelter and drop-in center for non-adjudicated homeless and at-high-risk youth. We provide food (lunch, dinner, and snacks), showers, laundry facilities, clothing, hygiene items, phone, individual assistance, GED programs (in conjunction with The Downtown Learning Center), a place to hang out, computers, TV, support groups,ESL, Lifeskills groups, young women support group and help with employment & Job Search.


Our Mission Statement:

To provide a safe and supportive environment where homeless or at-risk youths will have their immediate needs addressed and where they will have access to resources which will help them develop the life skills necessary to become a responsible and productive community member.

Life is full of risks for many of Salem's youth. Every day they confront drugs, homelessness, family dysfunction and violence, HIV/Aids, thoughts of suicide. 73% of our downtown youth have thought of suicide; 43% have attempted it. 42% have been physically abused. One-third have been sexually abused; for 20% this occurred when they were 9 years of age or younger. Youth are resilient; their survival skills are strong. At HOME, we help disenfranchised young people connect with Family and Community in a positive way.

$ How You Can Help $
