The Evergreen Safety Net of Services:

From emergency shelter to transitional housing, mental health counseling, an on-site nurse, and independent living skills, there is a safety net of services for runaway, homeless, and high risk children, youth, and young families at Evergreen. Our Evergreen Youth Services site is located in an apartment building that was designed for programs and services and our business offices, as well as youth apartments upstairs. In addition to on-site youth apartments on the upper level, our Youth Drop-in Center has warm meals, a shower, laundry, computers, as well as applications for jobs, housing, and mainstream benefits. We also have an apartment building across the street which has 12 units we utilize for our housing clients. We are a designated youth food shelf and can help homeless youth and young families with food bags, diapers, winter coats, clothing, personal hygiene items, and more.
