Mission Statement

The purpose of Casa Youth Shelter is to provide temporary shelter for runaways and youth in crisis, enabling them to come through crisis with an increased personal strength and a sense of renewal while in a supportive environment, with family reunification as a primary goal. 

Background Statement

In 1978, Myldred Jones had already retired from the Navy as a Lieutenant Commander, played at active role in the Civil Rights Movement, and worked with then-California Governor Ronald Reagan to develop a state-wide crisis hotline for runaway teens. But, at the age of 69, Ms. Jones didn’t stop there. In her work with the Governor, she saw the need for an Orange County-based shelter specifically for homeless and troubled youth. It just took one woman and her unflappable fortitude to make that happen. In 1977, she sold her home and used the proceeds to purchase two adjacent lots in Los Alamitos. With help from friends, family and impressed politicians, she established the shelter in the three-bedroom house on one lot and took up residence in the adjacent cottage. On April 7, 1978, the shelter welcomed its first troubled youth through its doors. Many things have changed since that April day; the need for a youth-specific shelter in Orange County is not one of them.

From our location in Los Alamitos, Casa Youth Shelter serves as a critical link in the safety net for homeless and potentially homeless youth – the area’s only 24/7 full-service, youth-specific shelter. While we welcome youth who seek our care regardless of geography, we focus on providing outreach programs and services to areas where we may be most helpful in alleviating issues of youth in crisis, including homelessness. Our primary catchment areas include cities throughout Orange County where poverty and homelessness are prevalent. Casa Youth Shelter serves the needs of youth and families in-crisis both on-site through our Residential Shelter Care Program and in the community through our extensive Community Outreach Program. Our programs work in concert with each other to offer individuals and families the tools they need in order to mitigate crises and work together as a cohesive unit whenever possible.

While many things in our community have changed since 1978, Casa Youth Shelter’s mission has remained consistent: to provide a safe place to call home for runaway, throwaway and abandoned youth in crisis, enabling them to come through the crisis with increased personal strength and a sense of renewal while in a supportive environment. As an organization whose mission hasn't changed in nearly four decades, we remain steadfast in our determination to be a solution to the problems that plague at-risk youth, and we remain true to our founder's philosophy of depth over breadth -- that is, not to expand our programs just for the sake of expansion but to invest our resources into the unique needs of every one of our residents and their families. We firmly believe that has been the key to our quantifiable success -- and the success of our residents -- for 39 years. Our Board of Directors and Management Team are very purposeful in their analysis of our programs and small but significant changes are often made to ensure that as the needs of our residents change we are flexible enough to adapt in conjunction.

Given the need for programs serving unaccompanied homeless youth in California, Casa Youth Shelter is proud to be one of the 34 emergency temporary shelters in the state, providing 12 of the 24 emergency beds available to unaccompanied youth in Orange County. On a day-to-day basis, our Residential Shelter Care Program is run on a 24-hour schedule. That means our home is always open with awake staff on duty, 24 hours a day, so that any youth who find themselves on the streets at any hour can seek shelter with us. We are accessible during the day to school officials and social services; we are also a resource for local law enforcement officers who rescue teens from the streets in the middle of the night and bring them to Casa Youth Shelter for safekeeping and counseling. We provide immediate shelter to youth who are homeless, abused or otherwise in need of a family cooling off period. We offer our residents full shelter amenities including 12 licensed beds, meals, on-site professional counseling, and customized education services. The goal of this program is to help residents stabilize their lives in order to reunify them with their families while providing the entire family with crisis-aversion tools.

Impact Statement

Casa Youth Shelter’s Management Team constantly reviews and refines our stated outputs and outcomes to keep them well-aligned with our resident's needs. With over 40 years of experience, we are well aware that our level of success - and the success of our residents - is directly related to the relevance of our programs.

In 2018, we provided a safe shelter to 179 youth. Each resident received on average 11.74 days of shelter care, translating to approximately 2,384 total nights off the streets. Of the 179 youth in our care, more than a quarter were already homeless, runaways or throwaway youth by the time they reached out to Casa Youth Shelter for help. 85% were victims of sexual, physical or mental abuse, or were victims of sex trafficking.

In 2018, Casa Youth Shelter provided our 179 residents with 7,212 hours of crisis counseling, including one-on-one individual, family and teen group counseling, or an average of 31.5 hours per youth. Of those 179 residents, 93% self-reported in their exit interview that they found their time to be successful and satisfactory; 75% safely exited to a parent or relative’s home and the majority of those continued with our aftercare supportive services.

Needs Statement

1. Diversify Collaborative Activities: Casa Youth Shelter's Outreach Team maintains high profile positions on various issue-specific and area-specific collaboratives, such as the Orange County Human Trafficking Taskforce. These relationships have served us well, often leading directly to resident referrals and greater community education opportunities; we are also actively seeking partnerships with newer collaboratives that have been formed in Orange County in response to the increasing homeless population and housing crisis.
2. Expand Counseling and Academic Trainee Program: To accommodate the growing resident census in our shelter we aspire to also strengthen our Counseling Program, which is comprised of the best and brightest MFT Trainees. 
3. Increase Volunteer Opportunities: We realize the importance of offering meaningful volunteer opportunities. 

CEO Statement

Casa, literally “home”, is just that. For 40 years Casa Youth Shelter has become home to thousands of young people in crisis. Here, in our home, they have found more than just a bed to sleep in and a warm meal (although they’ve found those too). At Casa Youth Shelter, youth come to find safety, kindness, compassion, counseling and a path forward. They find support for their whole family; they find case management services that help address a multitude of needs; they find counselors who will help them for weeks, months, even years after their residency ends. At Casa Youth Shelter our residents find the home they need in their time of need.

Residential Shelter Care Program

CYS’s Residential Shelter Care Program is run on a 24-hour schedule – our home is always open with awake staff on duty so that any youth who find themselves on the streets at any hour can seek shelter with us. We provide immediate shelter to youth who are homeless, abused or otherwise in need of a family cooling off period, offering residents amenities including 12 licensed beds, meals, on-site professional counseling, and customized education services. The goal of this program is to help residents stabilize their lives in order to reunify them with their families while providing the entire family with crisis-aversion tools. We provide three nutritious meals a day with snacks and other basic needs such as hot showers, clean clothes and fresh linens for beds. CYS’s Residential Shelter Care Program also provides comprehensive counseling services to our shelter residents and their families - clients who have historically lacked access to clinical mental health treatment.

Budget  750,000
Category  Human Services, General/Other Children & Youth Services
Population Served Adolescents Only (13-19 years) At-Risk Populations
Program Short-Term Success 

The effectiveness of the Residential Shelter Care Program is evaluated based on two of the program’s overarching objectives: 1) To maintain a minimum 85% "Successful or Satisfactory" exit disposition rate based on client survey responses; 2) To maintain a minimum 75% success rate in reunifying residents with their families. In 2017, upon leaving the shelter, 98% of our residents assessed their own disposition as “Successful” or “Satisfactory”. These same residents were in the depths of crisis just weeks prior. Additionally, in 2017 77% of our residents were successfully reunited with their families and nearly all of those families participated in aftercare services. 

Program Long-Term Success  Long term success for CYS residents would include the avoidance of future homelessness, completion of educational goals, positive community contributions and general adult productivity. When it comes to tracking that success, there is a degree of challenge inherent to program evaluation when working with our particular client population. They are minors, in crisis at the time services and evaluations are rendered, many are transient and all are deserving of confidentiality. The vast majority of our clients are willing and able to complete follow-up evaluative surveys; however, there are those who move on from Casa Youth Shelter and opt not to remain in contact or respond to our attempts at follow-up. As clinicians and therapists, we are careful to respect clients’ healing processes and in some cases a total separation from the shelter is an integral part.
Program Success Monitored By 

To evaluate all programmatic development and outcomes, CYS utilizes a variety of procedures to track both client and overall progress. CYS employs a customized electronic data management program to compile statistics and measure results year after year. Upon arriving at Casa Youth Shelter, a client’s relevant background and demographic data is collected by staff and entered in the database. Collected information includes (but is not limited to) family size and income, home city, employment and educational status, referral reason, alcohol/drug use and child abuse incidents.

In addition, each youth’s individual case plan serves as an important tool to track personal as well as programmatic goals and progress. All actions taken on behalf of each client are logged including the date of intake interview and exit date. CYS’s record-keeping and data gathering procedures ensure that we accurately compare results from year to year and can make adjustments to improve performance where needed.

Extended Placement Program

Casa Youth Shelter also has the capacity to house youth aged 12-17 for longer periods through our Extended Placement Program. In these cases, the residents are legal dependents of a county social services agency.

The Extended Placement Program offers a long-term structured home environment with many of the same services as the Temporary Shelter Program. Additionally, long term residents go to school, and have off-site privileges. Many of these residents, those older than 16 years, have part time jobs in addition to their school responsibilities, which Casa Youth Shelter encourages.

Budget  $120,000.00
Category  Human Services, General/Other Children & Youth Services
Population Served Adolescents Only (13-19 years) At-Risk Populations
Program Short-Term Success  Provide a safe and supportive home environment .
Program Long-Term Success  Nurture valuable skills into youth and prepare them for self-sufficiency and independence. 
Program Success Monitored By  Youth supervisors and licensed counseling staff evaluate the Extended Placement candidates daily and provide professional assessment. Recommendations are made on a case-by-case basis to determine the best course of action to achieve financial independence and self-sufficiency as they transition into adulthood. The help they receive varies depending on the specific needs of the youth and in the past included trade skills training, job placement, college enrollment, and drug and alcohol rehabilitation arrangement. 
Examples of Program Success 

 “Candice,” a pseudonym used to protect her identity, was17-years-old when she arrived at our shelter and was an open case file with the county social service system for many years. Her relationship with her mother was very volatile. Candice displayed extreme fits of rage and suicidal tendencies as did her mother. There was a history of physical child abuse and when Candice became emotionally overwhelmed she would cut herself in order to relieve the emotional tension. She was living with her mother’s boyfriend and older brother, who were both drug abusers. This was a constant source of conflict as her mother refused to make any changes to this situation for Candice’s sake. She also turned to drugs herself and developed her own addiction.    

Her social worker was concerned for her safety and decided that Casa Youth Shelter was the best home for Candice. While here, Candice received regularly individual counseling and group counseling with her mother at Casa Youth Shelter where it was reported that Candice and her mother had a combative sisterly relationship. They made great progress through the intensive therapy received at the shelter. She continues to be a part of her life. We also helped Candice enroll in a drug rehabilitation program where she overcame her addiction.  

Staff at Casa Youth Shelter took her to school every day and helped her acquire a part-time job. With Casa Youth Shelter as her home, she did not miss any of the normal activities of a high school student. Everything from prom dress shopping to help with homework was provided for Candice.

She has since received her diploma from high school and the staff at Casa Youth Shelter made up her largest cheering section. She will be with us until she turns 18-years-old, during which time she will age out of “the system.” We have already made provisions for her to be self-sufficient and living independently including placement in an apartment and employment.   

Youth Leadership Program

The Youth Leadership Program (YLP) focuses on the communities surrounding the shelter with activities such as:

  • Peer support – YLP members network with local schools to assist in identifying helpful resources for students on their campus.
  • Community Outreach – YLP members help introduce Casa Youth Shelter to the community through speeches, forums, agency days, and literature handouts. The resulting awareness furthers Casa Youth Shelter’s mission to reach out to youth in need and expand our base of involved young people. In addition, YLP offers homeless outreach to the community. Food/supplies, as well as “fun” to children living in motels.
  • Prevention Activities – YLP members participate in activities where they can spread awareness on alcohol, tobacco, homelessness, bullying and other concerns.
  • Program Design, Planning and Management – Who can better understand and help direct needed services for youth than members of their own peer group? YLP involves young leaders in the development and implementation of Casa’s programs and services.
  • Special Event Coordination – YLP members participate in Casa Youth Shelter events as well as develop and sponsor their own support activities.
  • Awareness – Casa Youth Shelter often arranges to publicize the shelter’s services in school publications, in order to promote awareness with both students and families. In addition, YLP members often publicize their own community-based events.
  • Board of Directors representation – At Casa Youth Shelter we believe it is important for youth to have a voice. A unique feature of YLP is its representation at the Board of Directors' monthly meetings where they provide a report on their activities.

Program Short-Term Success  The Youth Leadership Program is designed to develop leadership skills in high school students. The program offers personal growth through seminars, volunteer activities and mentorship. YLP also offers teen a forum to learn parliamentary procedures through their meetings.
Program Long-Term Success 

The leadership skills acquired in the Youth Leadership Program will enable it's members to possess lifelong, valuable skills. 

Program Success Monitored By  Our Youth Leadership Program is lead by a peer board and by Casa Youth Shelter's Community Outreach team. 
Examples of Program Success  Dozens of high school volunteers have accumulated thousands of community services hours as well as executed several prevention and intervention activities. Our YLP teens participated in "Sticker Shock," a collaboration with M.A.A.D. to place stickers warning patrons at local liquor stores not to purchase alcohol illegally for minors. They won the "Battle of the Banners," where their banner design and slogan will be featured for the official marketing campaign during Red Ribbon Week. Our teen leaders work tirelessly at local walks, community events and school sponsored activities. 

Community Outreach

Casa Youth Shelter provides our community with a variety of crisis-prevention programs and family outreach programs including: violence intervention and prevention programs to students and their families in over twenty middle schools and high schools across six different school districts. In addition, Casa Youth Shelter is a member of the Anaheim Collaboration to Assist Motel Families and pays monthly visits to local motels to provide food, clothing, school supplies and other basic necessities to needy families. Volunteers and staff engage in educational and leisure activities with the young children in these motels. Most importantly, we are there to provide outreach services to the teenagers of these families and inform them that there is a safe place for them to go. One of our main outreach programs is our weekly court accepted Parenting Classes offered onsite designed to encourage effective parenting techniques and to strengthen relationships between family members. We offer a series of parenting instruction in both Spanish and English. In conjunction with the parenting classes, we simultaneously offer Teen Drop-in group counseling sessions. These group sessions are designed to cover the same topics as the coordinating parenting class to provoke more meaningful and relevant discussions with parents and their teenage children.  

Budget  $100,000.00
Category  Community Development, General/Other Community Development, General/Other
Population Served Adolescents Only (13-19 years) Families Adults
Program Short-Term Success  We increase public awareness of Casa Youth Shelter’s services by making presentations at local business and charitable organizations, service provider cooperatives and through collaborations with local governments and police departments, so that Casa Youth Shelter is on the forefront of families’ and service providers’ minds as a resource. These outreach efforts are meant to disseminate critical information regarding resources available at Casa Youth Shelter. During 2012, under the direction of Casa Outreach Coordinator Pamela Sepulveda, MSW, nearly 10,000 hands-on hours were dedicated to Community Outreach Programs.
Program Long-Term Success  Casa Youth Shelter does not turn away any youth who seek our shelter care. However, our high-quality shelter and counseling services are made possible by keeping the shelter census at capacity, not exceeding it. Moreover, we believe that we are most effective in helping youth in crisis when we are preventing them from needing our shelter services at all. Therefore we believe that crisis-prevention is as important as direct shelter services. 
Program Success Monitored By  Every member of of organization is required to log his or her community outreach in units of hours into a robust data management system. There is a list of metrics that Casa Youth Shelter then uses to analyze this data including direct links from client to outreach event. Moreover, every client, parent, and participants in our Parenting classes are given an anonymous online survey upon completion of respective programs.
