Community Partnership

Our Partners: Redefining What a Homeless Shelter Means

Collaboration is crucial to CHA’s mission of ending youth homelessness. Inside our building is a community within a community, where lives are changed with help from our on-site partners who provide healthcare, high school classes, cultural workshops, GED preparation, job readiness, drug and alcohol abuse counseling, suicide prevention, mental health services and life skills training. All our partners have space at our Youth Engagement Center (YEC), so no youth falls through the cracks as they get counseling, earn their educations or follow up on services. Our partners include:
