Pillars of Opportunity

Safe Homes

SBY operates multiple residential facilities, all of which offer counseling and classes that can lead young people back to a more stable and supportive family situation, or on a path to independence and self-sufficiency.

Life Skills

SBY builds young people’s life skills by focusing on communication, daily living, work/study skills, home life, self-care, social relationships, and housing/money management. Community engagement to promote stable families, parenting education, and health and wellness education are important aspects of our life skills development programming.

Workforce & Education

SBY provides tangible educational and workforce development opportunities including mentoring, academic support, vocational training, career planning and job placement to help young people stay focused on the future.

“For over 40 years, our professional staff has used comprehensive, competency-based approaches to offer youth and their families shelter, counseling, life skills and positive development experiences.”
