Before Thirty

Organization: Friendship Place

Before Thirty is a person-centered program that provides employment and housing services to youth and young adults aged 17-29 (including single mothers) experiencing or at risk of homelessness. Friendship Place staff regularly meet with youths in the program to design customized plans that help them to achieve their goals. Job Developers at our AimHire Job Placement program arm participants with tools that will speed their professional growth, such as training in job readiness, resume preparation, interviewing skills, job identification, and outreach to potential employers. Participants are also given mentoring opportunities, and are encouraged to attend our life skill workshops, creative expression workshops, social events, community events, and more. Once they are placed in employment, participants are assisted in finding affordable housing. They also receive financial assistance for move-in costs, security deposits, and up to two months’ rent.
