Our mission is to provide a safe, supportive environment
where Salem's at-risk and homeless youth may
have their immediate needs met as well as
have positive opportunities to reconnect
with their community.

In the words of some of our youth:
HOME helps (me) ”stay off drugs”…. “ I love
home, it is great”… “HOME should be open
every day and night” … “HOME gave me someone
to turn to when I needed help” … “HOME
helped get my life back together. Made me
open up my eyes”… “HOME has been a positive
place for me to hang out and get good advice
about family and social issues…helped me
with food, clothes, school”… “helps me with
my problems”…(helps me) stay in school and
We'd love to have you get involved in the
Home Youth & Resource Center activities
