It’s in the name. We serve Tulsa’s homeless and at-risk youth.
We provide food and shelter (a Safe Place) when they need it. We teach them about sexual health. We provide counseling to adolescents and their families. We help youth learn from their mistakes and coach them to make better choices.
Why do we do this? Because they need us.
We offer complementary programming in four areas — Runaway and Homeless Services, Counseling, Delinquency Prevention, and Youth Development. We are fortunate enough to interact in the lives of thousands of area youth and their families. With your assistance, we help them change their lives.
Last year looked a bit like this:
379 youth stayed in our Emergency Shelter.
110 previously homeless youth received housing in our Transitional Living program
514 youth earned a dismissal of charges by participating in our First Offender Program
YST counselors provided counseling to 561 youth and their families
More than 4,221 youth completed PregNot courses
685 homeless youth received services at The Station, YST's Street Outreach facility
