We know that one program cannot solve all set backs in life. That’s why at IYS, we have several programs that all work together to help give youth in the Klamath Basin ample opportunity to thrive. A youth can participate in multiple programs, and is often encouraged to! If you are in need of a hand up, start by looking through what IYS offers, and how we may be able to offer hope today:
Exodus House, IYS’ short-term shelter, is the only voluntary homeless/runaway and foster youth shelter program in Klamath County, Oregon. Exodus House, operating 24-hours a day, provides shelter, food and other services.
The Independent Living Program is designed to help young people in Klamath County become self-sufficient. Most of the youth are transitioning from foster care, but we also work with a small number of homeless youth.
The purpose of the IYS McKinney-Vento Program is to meet the needs of at risk youth and ensure equal access for all students to ensure all children are given equal opportunity to a fair and just education.
Bringing resources out to families living in the rural towns of Klamath County. This includes materials from partnering organizations in town, as well as bringing other IYS program aids out into rural communities.
