On the occasion of National Slavery and Human Trafficking Prevention Month, NCHYF spoke with Valerie Douglas, Director of Runaway and Homeless Youth Programs at the Center for Youth Services (CYS) in Rochester, New York. A FYSB Runaway and Homeless Youth program grantee for more than 20 years, CYS operates the Safe Harbour program, which provides services and advocacy for youth survivors of human trafficking and youth at risk of being trafficked.

National Runaway Prevention Month is a time for all of us in this field to take stock of our work and the approaches we take to help at-risk youth. The Latin American Youth Center in Washington, D.C., emphasizes mentoring as a way to connect with young people and show them their potential.

The Colorado Rural Collaborative for Runaway and Homeless Youth has served homeless and at-risk youth in rural communities for more than a decade. Currently, the Rural Collaborative is in its second year of its current Basic Center Program (BCP) grant. This RHY program covers a wide geographic region within Colorado’s Balance of State Continuum of Care (CoC) from the Western Slope to Southern Colorado to the Northeast Quadrant of the State. For this edition of Get to Know a Grantee, we spoke with Denise McHugh and Kippi Clausen who co-lead the Rural Collaborative.

The RHY Clearinghouse developed the Get to Know a Grantee questionnaire to illustrate the great variety of youth-serving FYSB grantees, to share their insights on the work that they do, and to inspire collaboration and the sharing of experiences and ideas. This month, we feature Looking Glass Youth and Family Services in Eugene, OR. Looking Glass was among the first youth-serving organizations to receive FYSB funding; they were first awarded an RHY grant in 1974.
