Our Current Project: the Door
In Fairbanks, teens lack safe shelter. Disconnected, they find shelter in unsafe and potentially dangerous situations. “the Door“, Fairbanks Youth Advocates’ emergency youth shelter will be there for them. In anticipation of our 2013 opening; we need your help:
Provides three nutritious meals, a hot shower, and other critical basic services. You help us get youth off the street and connect them with people who can help!
Provides clothing, toiletry supplies, & crisis counseling, in addition to meals & showers. When basic needs are met, our teens have hope for the future.
Spreads our net, and re-connects teens in crisis with familiar adults through family reconciliation services, going even further towards helping that teen succeed and get back on their feet.
