About Genesis Outreach, Inc
While working and volunteering in different social service areas, the founder felt the need and had a desire to help youth and young adults. These were just kids, but they had nowhere to live and no way to survive without resorting to theft, prostitution, or the drug trade. For whatever reason, these kids’ families could not care for them. In November 2006, Genesis Outreach was birthed.
The basic goal of Genesis Outreach is to prevent more serious problems in the future and reduce homelessness through coordination of services. Whenever possible, youth will be assisted in remaining in their family environment; families will be given the support needed to remain intact. Early intervention, including family reunification, alternative housing, and educational assistance is emphasized. Program quality is closely monitored and assessed on the basis of client outcomes. Individuals are involved in evaluating their own level of satisfaction with the program’s services and in recommending changes in the program/services. Some of our goals include:
•Assistance in finding a stable, safe living environment •Family reunification and mediation, if possible •Maintain/encourage school attendance •Connection with resources to provide health care, clothing, on-going counseling, nutrition, job training/opportunities, and other resources for which the youth may be eligible to receive
