If you are looking for housing services or linkages, our staff can help you complete the Next Step Tool, which is a Los Angeles Homeless Services Authority coordinated entry system for youth to connect you with appropriate housing resources.
We also offer two types of housing for youth in safe, goal-directed communities.
Our transitional housing program trains youth in the basics of independent living with daily support and advocacy from a multidisciplinary on-site team. Although there is no time limit on how long youth can stay at YMO, youth create a two-year plan for reaching permanency. Our single-site model is the only one of its kind in L.A. County. Each week youth take part in individual therapeutic services, case management, independent life skills, and community building activities.
After years of offering transitional housing to transition-age youth (TAY 18—25), youth inspired us to offer more pathways to permanency. Through valued partnerships, we added affordable, supportive permanent housing to complement the other programs within our continuum of care. TAY benefit from living in their own apartment for additional two years with support services that—include but are not limited to—workforce development, health and wellness, and life skills.
Participants in both transitional and permanent housing have access to:
- On-site tutoring
- Workforce development
- Substance abuse counseling
- Financial literacy training
- Therapeutic services
- Gym memberships & much more
