WAIT House

A nonprofit organization

WAIT House's goal is to provide stability and resources to homeless youth through coordinated services, reunification with families when appropriate and the provision of supervised emergency and transitional housing.  Since opening its doors in 2003, WAIT House has provided over 27,000 bed nights to over 1,800 youth and young adults.  We work with each young person who comes through our doors to foster independence, personal responsibility and self-sufficiency.  Relationships built, lessons learned and confidence gained while at WAIT House last a lifetime.
