HOST HOMES

A host home is a place where youth can stay temporarily and receive mentoring and guidance.  Staircase is looking for individuals willing to provide housing for a youth.

"I am fortunate to have an outstanding staff.  They are dedicated to promoting positive youth development and strengthening families in all they do."

"I work hard to create an environment free from judgement where youth can express their feelings and be open and honest and feel secure and safe.  In Mason County I work with at-risk youth ages 12-17 and in Lake County I work with all ages of youth from 12-21 years old"
