Why does HOME exist?

Life is full of risks for many Marion County teens. Every day they confront drugs, family dysfunction, violence, and sometimes thoughts of suicide.

However, youth are resilient. Their survival skills are strong. They may turn to each other, to family, a teacher...or to drugs, gangs, and other destructive options.

At HOME, disenfranchised youth find a safe place, caring adults, and opportunities to connect with their community in a positive way.

 

"HOME helps [me] stay off drugs”…. “ I love home, it is great”…
“HOME should be open every day and night” … 
“HOME gave me someone to turn to when I needed help” … 
“HOME helped get my life back together.  Made me open up my eyes”…
“HOME has been a positive place for me to hang out and get good advice about family and social issues…helped me with food, clothes, school”… 
“helps me with my problems”…[helps me] stay in school and be kinder”.
