We provide youth and emerging adults who have challenges related to substance use, mental health and/or justice involvement with a sense of belonging, the skills and capacities for self-advocacy, healthy relationships, and positive engagement in the community.
Serving Alamance, Chatham, Orange and Durham Counties
Through our Mentor Program, Youth Peer Support Groups, Community-based Partnerships and Resource Network, we help youth develop positive relationships with their families, peers, teachers and others within their community.
Our staff and peer support mentors engage in promoting trust and self-acceptance with youth participants by advocating for youth, coordinating with existing service providers, and linking youth with community resources, thereby increasing the chances of a participant’s successful reintegration. We receive referrals from schools, treatment programs, community partners, family members, as well as the justice system. Learn more about our work.
