One Way Love

Youth who are homeless or unable to safely remain in their homes can count on us to provide safe, comfortable, effective services and keep them out of the child welfare system.

Studies show that 50% of adolescents aging out of foster care and juvenile justice systems will be homeless within six months because they are unprepared to live independently and have limited education and no social support. We want to break this cycle of homelessness through the comprehensive services we offer.

Our mission

The courage to see those who are hurting.

The courage to feel the sadness of others.

The courage to act when no one else will.

Our goals

To break the cycle of homelessness.

To provide shelter and safety to the vulnerable and abandoned.

To help youth live up to their potential, and see the potential inside themselves.
