About Youth in Transition:
Building a Foundation for a brighter future for homeless and at risk youth and young adults by providing outreach, case management, referrals, crisis intervention and advocacy. 

YIT works with “throwaways”, rejected by parents or other service providers, runaways, outcasts, gay, lesbian, bisexual, transgender, those with mental health issues, sexually physically or emotionally abused, and  escaping dysfunctional families where substance abuse, violence, neglect are the norm.  Pride month is about community, so help those in need this June.

We do not judge them but we do hold them responsible for their present actions while guiding them and showing them alternatives. 
If you or someone you know needs services from YIT please contact: (505) 315-4664
If you would like more information about our agency, or would like to donate or help please contact: (505) 440-3402
