Iowa Homeless Youth Centers (Des Moines)
Emergency Contact: 515-249-1443
The Iowa Homeless Youth Centers works to eliminate homelessness among children, youth, and young mothers in Polk County. We believe, with support and assistance, homeless individuals and families can live independently and attain self-sufficiency.
The GLBTQ&A Youth Group is a free, informal, drop-in social and support group for gay, lesbian, bisexual, transgendered, questioning and allied youth ages 12-18.
The mission of UAY is to assist youth and families in helping themselves to a healthy future. We do this by offering youth development, counseling and prevention programs that make use of young people's talents, creativity and energies.
