Yamhill County host homes for homeless and runaway youth needed

Happy house

Youth Outreach Center in Newberg is now accepting applications for *SafeShelter Host Homes*. These homes (individual or family) would provide emergency shelter of up to 21 days for 11-17 year old runaways or homeless youth in our local communities. If you are interested in opening your home to youth in need, here are the details. 

When a youth enters the *SafeShelter* program a case manager will work with the youth, while providing support to the Host Home.

Host Home applicants will be required to pass background checks and provide biographical information. Participation in ongoing training and support meetings is also required, and very beneficial. Certified applicants will receive a monthly stipend and nightly allowance when sheltering youth.

Partner with Youth Outreach to address the growing problem of runaway and homeless youth by
offering them a safe place to stay and helping them with what is next.
