Intake & Crisis Care

My Friend’s Place aims to engage each new young person in
an intake conversation that orients youth to My Friend’s Place,
shares critical information about accessing services and
ensures that each young person who walks through our doors
has the greatest opportunity to connect with appropriate
resources to address their unique needs and goals.

The intake process includes the gathering of basic information, and a bio-psycho-social assessment to help staff determine appropriate interventions according to each young person's needs. Information gathered during intake includes, but is not limited to, the length of time that a youth has experienced homelessness, their engagement with the juvenile justice or foster care system and/or their parenting status.

The Intake & Crisis Care team receives ongoing supervision and training to identify risks commonly confronting youth experiencing homelessness, including suicidal ideation and human trafficking, allowing intake specialists to refer youth to the most appropriate resources and interventions.
