What We Do
Daybreak has four core programs serving youth and young adults in crisis in the
- Daybreak operates the region’s only emergency shelter, open 24/7, for youth ages 10 to 19. Daybreak provides shelter, food, clothing, counseling, safety, and stability to more than 200 youth each year.
- Daybreak’s housing program is the region’s only program designed to move homeless youth ages 18 to 24 out of homelessness, poverty, under-education, and crisis and into housing, financial independence, educational achievement, and self-sufficiency.
- Daybreak’s street outreach program makes contact with more than 1,500 youth each year who are couch-hopping or living on street and looking for help. Daybreak will provide these youth with basic necessities while helping them find a safe place to live.
- Daybreak's employment program helps Daybreak youth develop the skills necessary to get and keep jobs. Work-readiness training is provided at Lindy & Company, Daybreak's gourmet pet treat bakery. In addition, youth receive job assessment and job placement services.
