SetonYouth Shelters is a nonprofit organization. They provide a safe haven, counseling and outreach services, 24 hours per day without charge, to assist youth in crisis throughout Hampton Roads, with the goal of reuniting families. Seton Youth Shelters provides a 24-hour emergency shelter for youth ages 9-17 years old. This program serves runaway/homeless youth and youth in crisis within their family, school and/or community. The residents are provided youth advocacy and individual/family crisis counseling. Case management activities facilitate coordination of services, community referrals and aftercare follow-up. Youth who enter the shelter program attend local public schools unless parents provide transportation to their home school. Our shelters provide counseling that addresses a variety of topics and serve to increase youth awareness of community resources. Their Youth Outreach Program (YOP) conducts direct outreach to youth up to 18 years old. They offer onsite crisis counseling, crisis intervention, immediate access to emergency shelter for 9-17-year-olds and intensive support services. In addition to these crisis services, their Van Outreach component provides food, clothing, hygiene items, and written information. Their youth education conducts prevention activities and includes topics of child abuse, substance abuse, human trafficking, homeless and runaway services, and community-based referrals, connecting to youth and their families to medical, mental health, substance abuse treatment, and family resources in the cities where they reside. Their Mentoring Children of Prisoners (MCP) Program is FREE and available to youth 4 to 18 years old who have been affected by the incarceration (past or present) of someone in their lives. Each child is paired with an adult who takes on the role of a friend- NOT a substitute parent.
