The Community Service Committee of the Outreach Board has committed to in depth support of Wind Youth Services. Wind Youth Services is Sacramento County’s only program serving homeless youth. Their mission is to provide supportive services and opportunities to youth experiencing homelessness as they pursue self-determined lives of stability and independence. Pioneer’s mission is to support them in this worth endeavor.
Wind Youth Services depends on the generous donations of our community. As youth homelessness grows in our community, so does the need to address the issue proactively. Help us make positive changes in the lives of the youth WIND serves by attending Songs of the Season.
Through their programs and services, Wind Youth Services provides homeless and at-risk youth between the ages of 12 and 24 with basic safety net and survival services and a safe place to stay.
Youth Advocates in Wind’s Street Outreach program emphasize personal safety and crisis intervention, while working with each youth to develop a case plan.
The Wind Homeless Youth Drop-In Center is a safe, non-judgmental space for homeless and runaway youth away from the dangers of the street.
Case Management & Counseling
Wind Youth Advocates work with each youth individually to develop a case plan with an emphasis on personal safety, life skills development, and education.
Emergency Youth Shelter
Wind Youth Services provides a temporary, low barrier, emergency overnight shelter for youth ages 12-24.
