Facilitating positive change for youth- At Cascade Youth & Family Center (CYFC), we provide support and services to youth who have run away, are experiencing homelessness, or are at risk of running away.
Emergency Shelter: CYFC provides short term shelter for teens who are homeless, on the streets, or have run away.
Crisis Intervention: We offer crisis intervention services, including family mediation.
Street Outreach: Our outreach team offer supplies and assistance to youth experiencing homelessness. They also staff drop-in hours where youth can access showers, laundry facilities, and nutritious meals.
Transitional Living at the LOFT: Our LOFT program offers longer-term support and focuses on personal accountability. Here, youth receive the tools they need to complete their education and develop essential life skills.
Independent Living: Our case managers work with current and former foster children, providing guidance and mentorship to navigate the challenges of independent living successfully.
At CYFC, we believe in creating a future where every youth is empowered with personal accountability, resiliency, and equipped with the skills to be a happy, healthy member of the community. Our program and shelter is the only one of our kind within 150 miles.
Get Involved: Whether you’re interested in donating or simply spreading the word, your support helps our mission.
November is National Runaway Prevention Month (NRPM), a public awareness campaign designed to shine a light on youth who have run away and experienced homelessness that too often remain invisible.
Once a young person faces the instability associated with homelessness, whether they are couch surfing, staying in shelters, or sleeping on the streets, the consequences can be far-reaching. Some youth, including young people who identify as Black and/or African American, LGBTQIA2S+, non-White, and/or unmarried and parenting, experience homelessness at significantly higher rates compared to their peers. Our goal is to work with homeless youth to prevent them from becoming homeless adults.
