Y2Y New Haven
Y2Y New Haven started because young adults in New Haven saw a critical need for safe, affirming, and youth-specific services, launching what has become a city-wide movement. For the past several years, we have worked in partnership with students, youth experiencing homelessness, our partner organization Youth Continuum, other dedicated service providers, and community members to create an overnight program that will serve 20 young adults per night with seven single-stall showers and bathrooms, laundry facilities, computer access, meals, medical services, social enterprise opportunities, and an array of support and pathway services. We have made exciting progress and expect to launch toward the end of 2021 after an ambitious renovation. Y2Y New Haven will fill a critical need in the community, allowing us to get within reach of ending youth homelessness in New Haven
