Operating as Sunrise House we provide emergency shelter to youth ages 12-17 who have become or are at risk of becoming homeless. We provide a safe and supportive environment encouraging healthy decision making and to strengthen coping skills.
Youth come into our care for many reasons including family violence, addiction in the home, physical, sexual, or emotional abuse, sexual exploitation, and family breakdown. Each story is as unique as the youth who tells it, therefore individual case plans are created with each individual. Sunrise House is open 24 hours/day, 7 days/week – while in shelter youth are provided with food, clothing, and personal care items.
To provide safe, temporary emergency shelter for distressed youth ages 12-17
Every family has the resources and means to resolve family conflict with youth and maintain positive respectful relationships with the youth in their lives.
