Our House Shelter
Our House Crisis Shelter was established in 1991 as our community recognized a need to offer services to prevent youth from entering the Juvenile Justice and Child Welfare Systems.
Youth who call Our House for shelter services may be experiencing homelessness, severe family conflict or fleeing from a dangerous living situation.

Our House Shelter is a temporary residential program (maximum stay of 21 days) with the goal of family reunification. The majority of all sheltered youth return to their parent or guardian’s home after a brief intervention by YSB.
