Our Mission

Our mission at Housing Resources for Youth is to ensure access to safe and stable housing for homeless and at-risk students to enable youth to complete their education, reunify with their families when appropriate and make successful transitions to post-school life.


  • Respect for each youth’s dignity and individuality

  • Recognition for youth’s strengths, accomplishments, as well as their challenges

  • Acknowledgement of the impact of diverse backgrounds on emotional and mental development

  • A deep commitment to learning and meaningful development in the community, the network of Host Home Providers, and the people who support the HRY program

“The key to the HRY Program is helping youths understand that what they are experiencing in their homes, or lives, isn’t ‘normal’. There are ways of making things easier, and host homes are one part of that process.”
