Ignite stands with youth who are experiencing homelessness on their journey to a home and a future with promise. Ignite intensively serves over 500 young people each year – aged 14-26 – through a continuum of services that includes a drop-in resource center, four residential programs, an after-care program, and wrap-around supportive services including employment assistance, educational and recreational support, independent life skills training, mental and primary health care, and nutrition and culinary support. In addition, Ignite provides crisis intervention and referrals to thousands of youth each year via our 24-hour hotline and street and community outreach program.
