Emergency Youth Shelter

A temporary home for children in foster care or for youth experiencing housing instability. Many youths find themselves staying on friends' couches, sleeping at parks, or living out of cars. Our shelter offers a safe place with access to resources to help youth reach their housing goals.

Youth benefits


Staff meet the immediate needs of each new arrival. Hygiene supplies, clothing, food, medicine, and school supplies help children feel settled and safe.


Through trauma-informed care and Trust-Based Relational Intervention (TBRI) staff and counselors help youth heal from trauma and plan for their futures.


Opportunities to engage in activities typical for youth. Examples include school extracurricular options, summer activities, and shopping opportunities. 


Youth in foster care

Emergency Shelter placement must be requested by the youth's DFPS caseworker or Child Placing Unit. Authorized personnel can send the State of Texas Common Application to the agency intake email.
