We foster supportive relationships to create a healthy environment where at-risk youth and young adults feel safe, comfortable and valued. We are working to give our participants – and often their families – a holistic and proactive worldview that empowers them to achieve economic success and better lives. Through our innovative programs and services, our participants transcend obstacles, identify opportunities, and create balanced and fulfilling lives.

Advocacy within the Department of Human Services
Advocacy within the school district
Advocacy within the juvenile and adult justice systems
Food security support through the HPF Healthy Lifestyles program
