How you can Help

At Risk Youths Schenectady

Our vision is to end youth homelessness and exploitation and provide a safe community where youth can grow into healthy, self-sufficient adults.

Within the first 48 hours of a youth running away from home they are most vulnerable to pimps, traffickers, and gangs. Once the youth are in the “street life” it is very hard to leave.  We aim to protect these youth from these predators, but we cannot achieve our goals alone. Find out how you can help.
