With support from Partners for Home – the City of Atlanta’s Homeless Continuum of Care – Inspiritus has launched the THRIVE! Youth Host Home Program to help end youth homelessness.
Young adults ages 18-24, especially those who identify as LGBTQ and former foster care youth, will receive supportive short-term housing within a home setting and wrap around support services as they pursue permanent housing. The first year goal is to serve 30 youth.
“What is so special about this is that it really requires community buy-in,” Inspiritus Youth Program Manager Alix Janke said. “If you are a person who has said there is a problem with homelessness and I want to do something about it, there is no more concrete way than to invite a youth into your home.”https://atlantaintownpaper.com/2019/06/thrive-new-program-helps-to-end-youth-homelessness-in-atlanta/
