We sat down with two Host Home volunteers and two amazing young people to hear them speak about their experiences and why they decided to join Host Home programs in Baltimore. Thank you to St. Ambrose Housing Aid Center in Baltimore, MD for their amazing work!

Short-term Host Homes provide a safe and welcoming space for
1 - 6 months for youth experiencing homelessness.

‘It's all going to be a domino effect to where more people wanna help, more youth will get involved, and that's when the real change starts.’

Ken Slack, an amazing youth participant in the Avenues for Homeless Youth Host Home Program, sat down with us to talk about his experience with his two hosts, Nick & Steve. Listen to their stories, and hear how host homes have changed their lives.
