HELP FOR YOUTH

If you are a youth-in-crisis between the ages of 12-21 living in Lake, Mason, Manistee, Missaukee, Oceana and Wexford Counties, Staircase Youth Services can help.  Call our 24-hour crisis line to speak to a friendly outreach specialist.  You don't have to be homeless, couch-surfing or a runaway to call.  Let us help you build a better, brighter future.
