Homeless Youth Services

Since 1989, Homeless Youth Services has helped homeless and near-homeless youth finish high school, get a job, continue their educations after high school, and plan for an independent future. We help singles or couples -- pregnant, with kids or without. Our case managers and counselors help where it's most convenient for youth -- in schools, in the community and at our offices. Services for youth include:

  • Bus passes
  • Personal-care items, clothing and household goods
  • Child care assistance
  • Educational and career planning
  • Parenting classes
  • Employment assistance
  • Food boxes
  • Government benefits
  • Health/medical care
  • Independent living skills classes
  • Mental health counseling
  • Substance-abuse assessment and referral
  • Relationship/domestic violence education and counseling
  • Pregnancy testing, childbirth education and prenatal care referrals for pregnant and parenting youth in Tucson's 85705 ZIP code

Transitional Housing: We have a number of apartments designed to provide housing for up to two years for qualified youth ages 18-21. This housing program is designed for youth to work, complete educational or vocational goals, save money and transition into a permanent living situation. All youth in this program have access to case-management services. In collaboration with other agencies, we assure that youth find a stable living situation and receive the support services they need.

To begin the process of accessing youth case management and youth housing services please call the
Pathways HOME coordinated intake line at (520)867-6396.

Support for Teens in Transition is provided in part by the U.S. Department of Health & Human Services, the U.S. Department of Housing & Urban Development, the State of Arizona, Pima County, Sullivan-Jackson Employment Center, the City of Tucson, the Charles R. Lacy Memorial Endowment Fund, Ellen Kaye, Stone Canyon Community Foundation Fund held at the Community Foundation for Southern Arizona, and Tucson Electric Power Company.
