Making a Difference for Homeless Youth

Hope For Youth’s Transitional Housing—Rapid Re-housing Program provides critical support to homeless youth aged 18-24 in Nassau and Suffolk County. Thanks to the support of state licensing, federal funding, Suffolk County, and the Mother Cabrini Health Foundation, we offer safe housing options and essential services for these young individuals.

Our program focuses on empowering youth through low-barrier, self-determined housing solutions. With trauma-informed staff available 24/7 in our Transitional Housing, and dedicated case managers in our Rapid Re-housing sites, we provide counseling, case management, and independent living skill groups to ensure successful transitions to permanent housing.

Your support is key in helping us transform the lives of homeless youth. Join us today in making a difference.

Thank you for your ongoing support.

Spreading Happy Success Stories

At Hope For Youth, we are thrilled to witness the incredible journeys of our youth as they achieve remarkable milestones and overcome challenges. Today, we want to share three inspiring success stories that highlight the positive outcomes our programs strive to achieve.

  • One of our youths will leave Seaford Boys home and move in with his foster mother. He will continue to reside with her after he ages out of foster care.

  • One of the youths in our shelter is graduating from high school and will be attending Suffolk Community College starting in the fall
  • A youth in our supervision and treatment program is graduating from the BOCES aviation program and was accepted into Delaware State University to pursue his goal of becoming a commercial pilot. We would like to congratulate him on all of his hard work!
