Host Home Program
Tahoe Youth & Family Services Host Home Program provides emergency temporary shelter placement for youth under the age of 18 for up to 21 days. Host homes are certified foster families that contract with Tahoe Youth & Family Services to provide services for youth who may be thinking about running away from home, are runaways, having family conflicts, or need a little prevention services to prevent the youth from running away. This time away from their family allows the opportunity to connect the family to our counseling services in hope of family reunification or finding safe alternative placement.
Between 10/01/2019 through 9/30/2020 nine youth were sheltered including four families.
