Resources for At-Risk Youth

Teens, pre-teens, and younger children who live in harmful environments often face threats that endanger their ability to have a successful future. Because of situations beyond their control, these kids may encounter crime, violence, and/or poorly funded schools that hinder their ability to learn and grow. This puts them at risk of entering the juvenile system, becoming runaways, being homeless, getting addicted to drugs, or dropping out of school. In some cases, at-risk youth even face a higher risk of death. Fortunately, there are individuals and organizations besides ours that are dedicated to helping at-risk youth.
