My Friend’s Place

For 33 years and counting, My Friend’s Place has been
assisting and inspiring youth experiencing homelessness
to build self-sufficient lives.

From our early beginnings as a volunteer-based
group serving meals from the trunks of cars to
the dynamic resource center we operate today,

My Friend’s Place offers a comprehensive
continuum of services to 1,000 youth
experiencing homelessness between the ages
of 12 and 25
, and their children, each year,
helping our young people who are experiencing
homelessness to move toward wellness, stability
and self-sufficiency.

JEDI Vision

My Friend’s Place recognizes homelessness as a
social, racial and economic justice issue. As such,
we are resolute in our commitment to uplift all
youth experiencing homelessness while rigorously,
continuously, and concretely aligning our trauma-
informed service delivery and organizational
framework with guiding principles of Justice, Equity,
Diversity and Inclusion.
