Roof A Youth Foundation is a 501 c3 non profit organization. We service unaccompanied youth living the homeless experience. Our purpose is to mitigate the impact of homelessness on youth aged 12-25, through a network of services that model the US Department of Housing and Urban Development’s guiding principles. We partner with service providers that provide immediate access, services that are developmentally appropriate for youth, culturally competent, Trauma Informed and based on Positive Youth Development principles. We collaborate with organizations that emphasize family reunification, resiliency strategies and provide services that are individualized, flexible and choice based.
We design programs and events that are responsive to run away and homeless youth and youth at risk of being homeless. We strive to be a lead organization in the community responsible for coordinating, planning and keeping partners organized. We focus on housing solutions that are cost effective, safe and welcoming. We work to connect community partners and coordinate resources and information to address the homeless youth issue.
Your generous gift will help us fund our mission of ending youth homelessness.
The mission of Roof A Youth is to serve youth in need. We currently focus on un-parented youth and young families experiencing homelessness. Our outreach programs connect the community to information and resources regarding services and housing solutions for unaccompanied minors, Transitional Age Youth and parenting youth. We strive to make a lasting difference in Los Angeles and surrounding cities.
Roof A Youth is celebrating its 2nd Anniversary in Los Angeles. We provide quality community outreach programs that feature housing information/resources. We work to create fusion between providers and communities across the County of Los Angeles. This is currently achieved through our community outreach program called the Music Escape Festival.
Last summer we held our first community festival at Athens Park in partnership with LA County Parks After Dark. The event was attended by nearly 200 community members. The event featured music, entertainment, food, interactive games, resource vendors and educational panel discussions.
