What We Do
Our homeless youth emergency shelter is staffed 24/7 and includes support, needs assessment and case management on-site.
WAIT House's Transitional Living Program for Homeless Youth is for homeless females who are pregnant, parenting, or without children.
Early intervention and support gives parents the confidence, knowledge and tools for healthy and effective parenting. Offered at no cost.
Our permanent housing assistance program helps individuals and families of all ages locate and keep safe and affordable housing.
We do street outreach in Warren and Washington Counties, providing survival aid, education, shelter access, and crisis and case management services.
