Ninety Days of Love Crisis Center for homeless youth who have aged-out of foster care and Undocumented Youth. Credentialing: Employers often have difficulty understanding how our youth have survived through all they have gone through and be able to relate to civilian employment and careers. Ninety Days of Love Phases I and Phase II will help youth obtain credentials that help document their skills to success in life. Ninety Days of Love trained staff know how to interpret youth’ education and training records to determine how training and experience translates to civilian occupations. Our staff are trained to identify civilian credentials that reflect the occupations and skills listed in the training record and the steps the youth must complete to earn the credential.
Everything we do at Ninety Days of Love begins with 90 days of True Love ... with a door that's always open 365 days a year, 24/7 and a caring staff members saying to each youth, "we're here to serve you with True Love."
When youth come to Ninety Days of Love, the first step is to address their immediate needs – a warm meal, a shower, and the chance to sleep in a bed and to wear clean clothes. But crisis center at Ninety Days of Love involves much more than just fulfilling these basic needs – it's about building a foundation of safety and trust that, for many youth, has been completely eroded by their past of life on the streets.
Within 72 Hours of Entering Ninety Days of Love, Every New Arrival Visits In-House Clinic for Medical Attention
For youth with no healthcare, access to medical staff at Ninety Days of Love is a precious resource. And if someone comes to us with a medical crisis, no matter what the time of day, the clinic will provide immediate care. This initial medical visit allows us to give youth the psychiatric care they need. From there, we can assess if an individual might benefit from one of our unique mental health programs if needed.
Youth Are Evaluated in Terms of Job Readiness, Educational Status, and Legal Status
We gather basic information about youth, such as their age, where they have been staying, and any identification they might have. We will even drive new intake cases to the last place they were staying to pick up any belongings they were forced to leave behind.
Age-Out Foster Care Youth Entering Ninety Days of Love Have Little Knowledge of Their Own Rights and Protections under the Law
If we learn that a youth needs legal aid during the intake process, our staff lawyer can immediately provide assistance in obtaining a restraining order or identity changes to protect against predators. We can also help deal with unresolved legal issues that may stand in the way of a youth becoming a successful, employed adult.
Developing and Implementing a Continuum of Care
At any point, age out foster care youth can choose not to commit to a Ninety Days of Love program – we leave the choice up to them. But if they do decide to stay, Ninety Days of Love staff will develop an individual case plan tailored to each youth needs.
These plans help guide youth who are aging out of foster care and off the streets to give them the tools they need to lead happy and successful lives. By providing a continuum of care that ranges from job training to grief counseling, from GED classes to the Mother to Mother program, we provide support for every phase of a youth’s journey at Ninety Days of Love.
