Program and Services: Housing
NUY works with youth up to age 24 to find safe and stable housing. NUY support a youth board of youth who are experiencing or have experienced homelessness in their lives. Their insights shape and inform how NUY supports youth lacking stable housing. NUY Safe Homes is a volunteer host-home network for youth to access when home isn’t an option. NUY provides case management services for youth seeking help finding housing for one night or for years to come. When our host home network isn’t an appropriate fit, NUY partners with Community Action Center of Northfield or Three Rivers Community Action to find and identify other housing options. If you’re interested in becoming a volunteer host family, inquire at email@example.com for more details. If you know a homeless youth, or a youth who is couch-surfing, NUY can provide support in a lot of forms, including mediation services for families, financial assistance, employment help, or just a safer option.

Going into a week of gratitude and thanks giving, we know that we have so much to be appreciative of. The community of Northfield has never stepped down from a challenge, and they have continually been willing to open both their minds and their hearts to the work around them that needs to be done to make this community a great place for EVERYONE. Never enough words exist to thank all those who give of their time, of their talents, and of their resources. THANK YOU so much to everyone who gave to the NUY during Give to the Max. We are so grateful to you all for believing in the power of youth voice and the creation of a caring community! ...

“Hello, my name is Haley Heiner. I am the Co-President of the Northfield Union of Youth, also known as 'The Key.' I have been attending there for a while now and I’ve honestly never felt more at home there. So many wonderful people have accepted me there and I’ve gained amazing new friendships. The Key has helped me through so much regarding mental health, social skills, financial problems, and more. Without The Key, I don’t know where I would be today, and so many youth could say the same. The Key is the longest-running youth-led and youth-empowering organization recorded in the United States and I want it to stay that way. So many kids, including me, need a safe space like The Key. I'm so grateful that I have a place like this, and I am beyond grateful that our community cares for this organization.”
