New Youth Shelter…

Youth Rising is expanding beyond our 7000 sf drop-in center and peer support/mental health services to develop the Youth Rising House (YR House). The YR House will be a 30-bed youth shelter in downtown Klamath Falls, Oregon in a recently purchased building (previously the Gospel Mission). The YR House will provide 24/7 emergency/crisis shelter and an 18-month transitional living program. We will provide 1:1 mentoring and guidance from Peer Advocates (Certified Peer Support Specialists with lived experience). Advocates will support YR House youth in gaining access and succeeding in education & GED programs, pre-apprenticeship and job-skills programs, counseling, healthcare, reunification with family, and gaining access to safe, permanent housing.
