Funds supported a van and two computers for Noah's Anchorage Shelter. The shelter provides 24/7 year-round housing, counseling, referrals, and basic needs for runaway and homeless youth in crisis. It is the only agency between Los Angeles and San Luis Obispo Counties that offers such services. The shelter also provides "cool off" services such as family and individual counseling and group therapy. Hot issues, such as suicide or gang activities, are red-flagged. Nearly 90% of the youths served are reunited with their families or find safe, permanent housing.Our gift provided two computers and a new van to use to help teens at-risk or who are living on the streets.
