The Village Family Services (TVFS) will open a drop-in center to meet the needs of transitional-age, foster, and homeless youth in the San Fernando Valley.  The program will focus on providing bilingual, trauma-informed and culturally competent services to youth between the ages of 16 and 21—with a special focus on the needs of lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, queer and/or questioning young people who make up a disproportionately high percentage of the homeless youth population. The facility will provide youth with a safe place, access to health care and housing services, job training and employment programs, and opportunities for leadership.  Over the three-year project, 750 youth will be served.
