Without our hosts, we cannot provide our services.
Our hosts are the foundation of our work. We currently have around 80 hosts helping us across North and East Yorkshire, but sadly we still occasionally have to turn young people away because there is more demand for places than we can offer.
Could you help? We need hosts across North Yorkshire and East Yorkshire and particularly in Bridlington, Harrogate, Hull, Northallerton, Richmond, Scarborough, Thirsk and York.
Volunteering as a host is an opportunity for you to help a young person through a difficult period in their life. There is no special requirement, our hosts come from all walks of life. You just need to have a spare room and want to help young homeless people. You won’t be on your own – we provide full training and support, and payment with help with the costs of hosting.
"When I was 11 my mum died, and when I was 12 my dad died. It was tough, but it happens."
If you are in a position to help, we’d love to hear from you.
