A Home for the Holidays

The world is facing incredible challenges. It is a time to seek information and understanding, so that our struggles can be met with wisdom and courage. It is a time when we have the opportunity to do what we can to be part of the solution.

Casa Youth Shelter’s mission is to support all youth, without distinction. Because all youth deserve respect, in a safe and affirming environment that promotes feelings of security and of being valued, Casa Youth Shelter will continue to provide shelter, counseling, and support services to all youth who come through our doors.

Racism has no place in our organization or our community.

We strive to empower youth to come through personal challenges with confidence, stability, and tools for continued growth. We believe in a world where every youth feels safe, and no child needs to worry about where they are going to sleep at night.

We are committed to building a more equitable and compassionate world. We will listen, and learn, and embrace positive change.

Let’s be part of the solution, together.
