LAUNCHING A HUB TO CO-LOCATE SERVICES AND RESOURCES
We've secured a building in a gang neutral zone in the heart of San Francisco, and have begun renovations. This “hub” will offer a safe and non-judgmental space where youth aged 16-24 can come together to heal, connect with adults and peers who care, easily access services and resources under one roof, and engage in leadership development to become effective advocates for themselves and others. The Hub will offer services from our community partners that are client-centered, safety-focused, and culturally-responsive. It will emphasize each young person’s right to self-determination and services will be defined, shaped, and adjusted based on ongoing youth input.
CHAIRING THE SAN FRANCISCO YOUTH TRAFFICKING COMMITTEE
Our Executive Director chaired the Youth Trafficking Committee of the San Francisco Mayor’s Task Force on Anti-Human Trafficking for 2017 and 2018, and initiated staggered terms by bringing on a Co-Chair in 2018.
