Description of original award (Fiscal Year 2022, $610,000)

The purpose of this project is to provide housing and support services to transition-age youth who are victims of crime in Central Ohio. Many of these youth are also experiencing homelessness, housing instability or are living in unsafe situations. This collaboration with Kaleidoscope Youth Center and Star House will provide services to young people who are victims of crime and/or experiencing homelessness: safe respite from the streets, immediate access to basic needs, and connections to stabilizing resources, such as housing, physical and mental health care, employment and supportive relationships.
