Yamhill Community Action Partnership
SafeShelter” uses the licensed, therapeutic host home model to provide local shelter services that is coupled with comprehensive services and healthy activities for runaway and homeless youth ages 11-17. This essential service provides the assistance necessary to help affected youth move safely, with a Safe Exit, to a safe, stable, and appropriate living arrangement, developing a healthy, successful life.
As Coordinator I recruited, certified and trained Host Home Providers according to Dept. of Human Services licensing. I brought community awareness of the SafeShelter resource to schools and a variety of youth serving organizations in Yamhill County. I oversaw intake processes and case management of youth served in the SafeShelter program.
