YouthHope's mission is to "build confidence and promote self-sufficiency for homeless, runaway, and under-served youth by providing trust, hope, support, and education. No one is a lost cause".
YouthHope provides a warm and caring environment where homeless youth, runaway, and at risk youth can congregate and receive much needed love, hugs, and essential needs.
At the onset, YouthHope provides hot, nutritious meals for the youth and access to a food pantry and clothing closet. Case Management services are also available as well as access to YouthHope programs and services.
When youth are ready, YouthHope Case Managers and volunteers walk them through our various program options and opportunities. Our ultimate mission is to be a support system for homeless and at risk youth so they may grow to be healthy, successful adults who exit street life. We serve youth ages 14-24 who are homeless, runaway, or at-risk of becoming homeless. We are a certified 501(c)3 non-profit organization providing services in the City of Redlands and the surrounding areas of the Inland Empire.
YouthHope serves hot, nutritious meals
four times a week along with providing access to our food pantry. This program also provides youth with clothing throughout the year.
YouthHope believes that once basic life necessities are met, education, whether it is post secondary or vocational, is a primary means to assist youth to self-sufficiency.
An important aspect of our program is to ensure that our youth not only get the assistance they need physically through food and clothes, but also that their medical and mental needs are met.
Our housing program offers safe and affordable housing for former foster and homeless youth ages 18-24. It qualifies as a SILP (Supervised Independent Living Program) and is education based.
