Working together to make a difference.
Our approach to preventing youth homelessness is thanks entirely to our volunteer ‘hosts’.
These are ordinary people who have a spare room and want to help make a difference to a young person in their local community. Working together with our hosts, we make sure that young people can continue their education or work, even though they have lost their home.
We also work with other agencies so that they receive the support they need to resolve any additional problems they may have.
We currently work across York, North Yorkshire and East Riding.
How you can help
There are lots of ways you can help us. If you have a spare room and would like to be directly involved, you could become a volunteer host.
We also welcome your support through donations, fundraising or simply by helping us spread the word.
