YOUTH RESILIENT PROJECT

In Texas alone, over 230,000 youth and young adults are currently experiencing homelessness.

ENDING YOUTH HOMELESSNESS IN BEXAR COUNTY

By providing Rapid-Rehousing (RRH) assistance to Youth and Young Adults (YYA) between 18-24 years of all self-identified genders in the Bexar County area, we seek to reduce the number of youth experiencing homelessness.
