LET’S BRING AN END TO YOUTH HOMELESSNESS

In our own backyard, an estimated 5,000 Utah youth experience homelessness for at least one night a year, many of them sleeping outside, in camps in the mountains or deserts, in abandoned buildings, in places not meant for habitation, or in unsafe couch-surfing situations. Youth Futures was founded by Kristen Mitchell and Scott Catuccio in 2012 to provide an emergency shelter facility, drop-in services, and street outreach to homeless youth in Weber County and surrounding communities. Youth Futures’ first homeless youth shelter was opened in the heart of downtown Ogden, and after determining the need for a second youth shelter, St. George was opened to continue serving vulnerable youth in Southern Utah. As the only residential support temporary youth shelter currently licensed in Utah for youth ages 12-17, Youth Futures provides safe shelter, collaborative resources, respectful guidance and diverse support to homeless, unaccompanied, runaway and at-risk youth in Northern and Southern Utah. Our purpose is to provide homeless youth with a safe and nurturing environment where they can develop the needed skills to become active, healthy, successful members of our future world. 

SPEND A NIGHT IN THEIR SHOES, TAKE STEPS TO END YOUTH HOMELESSNESS!

#UTSleepOut2019 Southern Utah Edition will begin on Friday, November 8th, 2019 at 7pm and end on Saturday, November 9th, 2019 at 7am, located at TBA. This event gives participants the opportunity to experience a simulated night of a homeless youth being subjected to the adverse weather conditions. The average temperature in November in Southern Utah is usually below 50 degrees Fahrenheit, attendees should gear up to stay warm and plan to bring: sleeping bag, blankets, hand warmers, hats and gloves, large coats, and other necessary items. Because many youth don’t have access to resources – tents and cots will not be allowed during this event. Youth Futures will provide food from 7:30pm-9pm on Friday, and breakfast at 6am on Saturday. Unlike youth experiencing homelessness, participants will have access to a “warming zone,” bathrooms, first-aid, hot food and beverages, and on-site security. This night is a simulation, though we are sleeping under the stars in adverse weather conditions like many homeless youth in our community do each night, we would like to remind you, this event is to raise awareness about the youth we serve. Frequent stories of youth living on the streets, couch surfing, or staying in places not meant for human habitation (dilapidated buildings, houses, and sheds) are frequently told by the youth who enter shelter. Many are unaware of the services Youth Futures provides, and we need YOUR help!
