Seattle’s YouthCare operates several emergency shelter and housing programs for homeless and/or at-risk youth, ages 12-25, including ISIS House, a transitional living program specifically designed to help LGBTQ youth (and allies) ages 18-21 find a way off of the streets and into increased independence. All of YouthCare’s housing programs provide youth with stability, skills, and ultimately self-sufficiency, and each location offers mental health and chemical dependency services; life skills education; employment and education counseling; and an opportunity to learn and grow in a safe and secure community.
YouthCare’s drop-in center, the James W. Ray Orion Center, is located in downtown Seattle at the corner of Denny and Stewart Avenues, and provides meals, case management, hygiene supplies, clothing, and resource referrals to homeless youth ages 13-22.
