Youth Shelter

Ages 10 – 17, we provide emergency shelter for up to 72 hours —or up to 120 days with parental or guardian consent. The shelters are open and staffed by trained Life Coaches and a Case Management team 365 days a year, 24/7 – walk-ins and calls are accepted at all hours.

Transitional Living Program

Ages 18 – 21. The program focuses on the Four Core Outcomes to end homelessness.
1) Stable Housing
2) Permanent Connections
3) Social/Emotional Well-being
4) Education / Employment

Safe Families
for Children

Ages 0 – 24. Helping families in crisis get back on their feet and keep their families intact. Safe Families for Children surrounds families in crisis with a caring, compassionate community

Independent Living Program

Ages 16 – 21. Providing youth and young adults from Josephine and Jackson Counties who have been in foster care help transitioning into adulthood by building relationships with the youth while teaching essential life skills that prepare the youth to live on their own, with their own community supports.

Youth Shelter Services are available to:

All services are available to eligible youth and families regardless of any person’s race, color, religion, sex, (including pregnancy, gender, gender identity, gender expression), sexual orientation, national origin, disability or genetic information, marital or family status, veteran or military status, or other legally protected class. Walk-ins, drop-offs, and referrals are all assessed and screened to identify needs, eligibility and appropriateness. All youth entering the shelter will be cleared by local Law Enforcement. Hearts With A Mission provides a stable environment for youth to stabilize, stay in school, resolve conflict, learn new self-management skills, connect with safe adults and receive guidance and support while developing a safe exit plan through individual case management.

Youth can choose to move towards family reunification, alternate family living, or pursue self-sufficiency.
