Description

For 50 years, CHNY has worked to holistically address all factors that contribute to homelessness among youth and young adults, ages 16-24, and their dependent children. Our mission has always been to serve young people in need with absolute respect and unconditional love, and in this regard, our work adheres to the following five guiding principles of immediacy, sanctuary, value communications, structure, and choice.

The crisis shelter located in downtown Manhattan serves 120 young people daily and operates with a team of approximately 150 employees. The brand-new facility opened in November 2021 and offers staff and clients purpose-built spaces including congregate settings, meeting spaces, a cafeteria, a gymnasium, a music room, outdoor rooftops, and 5 floors of youth residential space. Services provided on-site include supportive housing, medical and mental health services, workforce development, youth development, parent/child support, benefits assistance, and legal support. A volunteer is needed to serve as a residential assistant, accompanying youth by floating among spaces as needed. Examples include covering the front desk, residential floors, meal service, assisting with laundry and clothing room duties, and covering common spaces for activities. Through these activities, the volunteer will build relationships with the youth and serve as an additional layer of support.
