    The primary purpose of the Drop-In Centers is to prevent youth homelessness or minimize its duration. Drop-In Centers have a broad role. They are resource hubs for the whole borough in which they are located, and they conduct outreach, provide information, and educate the public about youth homelessness and its causes. They also provide a range of direct services for RHY and youth at risk for homelessness and their families.

    Runaway and Homeless Youth Street Outreach Services: 26018I0003

    The purpose of Street Outreach is to help prevent youth homelessness or minimize its duration by distributing information to homeless youth and youth at risk for homelessness about available services and responding to their urgent needs, e.g., for food, clothing, first aid, transportation, etc. Street Outreach workers help youth access the range of RHY services funded by DYCD including arranging for transportation to a crisis shelter or other safe location and offering referrals to services that can assist them.
