Teen Services


Preble Street Teen Services meets the urgent needs of homeless and runaway youth — providing warmth and safety, nutritious meals, clothing, crisis intervention, and overnight shelter.

First Place permanent supported apartments provide young people with much-needed structure and services as they gain the knowledge and self-confidence to live successfully on their own. The program is a long-term supportive housing model developed and implemented by social service professionals who have a deep understanding of housing programs and the skills to help young people overcome obstacles to stable housing.

The Preble Street Teen Center is the hub of services for homeless and runaway youth, providing immediate access and an acclaimed service coordination model.

Fully integrated with the Preble Street Teen Center, the Joe Kreisler Teen Shelter plays a crucial role in ensuring that seamless services are available to homeless and runaway youth 24/7, 365 days a year.
