These DYCD-funded programs provide emergency shelter and crisis intervention services for young people between the ages of 16 and 20 or between the ages of 21 through 24 for Homeless Young Adult (HYA) sites. These voluntary, short-term residential programs provide emergency shelter and crisis intervention services aimed at reuniting youth with their families or, if family reunification is not possible, arranging appropriate transitional and long-term placements.
