About Attention Homes

Attention Homes is a safe resource for youth in crisis providing shelter, structure, and access to crucial services so that homeless and displaced youth can become stable, independent members of our community and achieve their potential. Established in 1966 by a group of thoughtful and concerned community members who believed that what young people needed was ‘attention, not detention’, today our organization has evolved to servicing over 7,500 youth ages 12-24.  Presently, we operate a Runaway and Homeless Shelter including street outreach, a day drop in center and overnight emergency shelter; as well as a Residential Child Care Facility for youth requiring out of home placements. We are a not-for-profit organization, registered as a 501 3(c).  For more information, visit www.attentionhomes.org.
