Crisis does not only affect adults. Children and youth in our community also experience crisis. Many do not necessarily know effective ways to handle these feelings on their own. Their internal struggles make them silent sufferers. Through our outreach and education, we hope that youth and teens who need help seek help from the resources the Cedar Rapids community has to offer them.
The Youth Shelter is an emergency shelter for youth, ages 11-17, who are experiencing a personal or family crisis, which makes it necessary to temporarily live away from home.
