WHY IT MATTERS
Jovenes, Inc. Empowers Youth to Succeed. Jovenes, Inc. focuses on housing homeless and at-risk transition-age youth, specifically those between the ages of 18-24. We are one of very few service providers in our geographic area that offers a full range of safety-net and supportive services for this population. The youth we serve come from all walks of life while facing many daunting challenges, but have severely limited options in terms of supportive resources and are often left to fend for themselves. In spite of all the obstacles they confront, our youth prove time and time again to be hopeful, energetic, full of potential, and committed to improving their lives. In order to meet this drive, Jovenes, Inc. employs a continuum of care throughout our shelters. This means that we seek to holistically meet the needs of our youth, ensuring that they live in a safe and supportive environment that encourages them to define and meet their personal goals, to receive educational training, to find and maintain good jobs, and to have a healthy transition into adulthood.
