Urban Peak works with youth aged 15 through 24 who are homeless or at risk of homelessness through a variety of programs including a shelter (ages 15-20), a day time resource center, education, employment services, and access to housing resources.
We provide intensive case management and mental health services in a “one-stop shop” environment in a confidential location that is safe, quiet and trauma informed. As part of our services we maintain a small resource bank and offer survivor support and mental health groups, as well as some on-site employment opportunities. We work closely with other trusted service providers in order to achieve a wrap around services option for those who desire such services. We have received multi-year funding to develop a peer support program. We believe in voluntad: the human ability and right to choose with freedom and dignity. We believe that while we can share resources and information, each survivor is the expert of their own life and deserves the chance to exercise and develop agency, self determination and a vision for the future. We seek to empower this in every survivor.
