Teen Living Programs is now Ignite! Ignite lights the spark of opportunity - standing with youth who are experiencing homelessness on their journey to a home and a future with promise. Ignite offers a comprehensive continuum of services to young people between the ages of 14 to 24 who are unstably housed or experiencing homelessness. Beyond meeting youths' immediate needs, our services provide youth with all the tools and support they need to succeed: stable housing; access to employment and education opportunities; primary and mental health care; lasting connections with caring adults, and the skills to live a healthy and independent life.
