The Homeless Youth Connection (HYC) Host Family Housing program was established to address the housing needs of unaccompanied youth, or youth on their own. HYC Host Families provide a supportive and caring home, creating a bridge between dependence and independence for a youth experiencing homelessness. Contact John Nesbitt, Host Family Case Manager, to learn how you can become a Host Family.

Many of our students work while completing high school. Contact Kayla McCullough, Program Manager, if you want to assist youth experiencing homelessness with career and job search needs.?HYC is seeking employment partners who provide training, benefits and opportunities for future growth.



In partnership with the community, HYC’s mission is to raise awareness and meet the needs of youth experiencing homelessness so they can stay in school and graduate.
