Runaway & Homeless Youth Services

Call or text our 24/7 Hotline 516-659-0923

Hope For Youth’s Runaway and Homeless Youth Services Program (RHYS) provides  Basic Center Programming which is funded  through the Family and Youth Services Bureau, a division of the US Administration for Children and Families and the Department of Health and Human Services.

These services have been added to our continuum of care in order to expand our reach. RHYS Staff provide services to youth under the age of 18 from engaging with them on the street and community settings through safety screenings, and needs assessments and providing aftercare services. Transportation and continued care coordination post discharge from our RHYS programming are available. RHYS Staff provide intensive services through the Basic Center Programming for the initial 21 days a youth resides in our RHY Shelter Program. RHYS Staff maintain a trauma informed milieu while providing essential services while supporting youth to achieve their goals.
