Simpson’s approach to working with families is strength-based, responsive, and holistic. All parents in our program work directly with a Family Advocate who focus on locating and retaining stable, affordable housing, and attaining personal goals related to financial stability, education, or employment. The mission of our Children and Youth Services programs is to break the generational cycle of homelessness by partnering with parents to support children’s academic success, stability, and well-being. Our Children and Youth services include:
There are a variety of ways to get involved with Children and Youth Services. We’re always looking for volunteer tutors and mentors to forge lasting relationships with youth transitioning out of homelessness. Volunteers bring their own unique strengths to the youth we serve, but all our tutors and mentors believe in the inherent potential of youth. Volunteers in all of our programs receive training and regular staff support throughout the year. Volunteers choose the age group, level of structure, and degree of scheduling flexibility that’s right for them.
