Host Home

Short-term host homes are an intervention for youth who are currently experiencing homelessness for any variety of reasons. The goal of short-term host homes is to provide a safe, temporary, welcoming space.


Partner agencies meet with families to determine needs and develop a family sustainability goal plan. Referrals to this program are made by the Central Navigator.
