Brighton Center was recently awarded the Street Outreach Program Grant from U.S. Department of Health & Human Services, Family and Youth Services Bureau. Street Outreach will provide aggressive street-based services to runaway, homeless, and street youth who have been subjected to, or are at risk of being subjected to, sexual abuse, sexual exploitation, and severe forms of trafficking in persons.
This will include outreach, prevention, individualized assessment, service linkages, case planning and follow-up for youth. The program will be located in our RHSY Homeward Bound Shelter at 13 East 20th Street in Covington, Kentucky, the largest urban city in Northern Kentucky (NKY) with the second highest number of homeless youth in the state.
Street Outreach will provide support services during the 3 year project period and will assist 250 youth per year (750 in 3 years) and inform 1,800 individuals per year (5,400 in 3 years) about our services.
