8 West is a sustainable program with a foundation based on the simple premise of “hope”. When you restore hope, the human spirit becomes indomitable. We not only help homeless youth re-discover what it means to have hope, but the long-term impact of our “homeless to hopeful” model also results in positive, deeply recursive effects throughout the community.

A program designed to help youth participants who may struggle with the transition from the highly structured institutional residential environment that comes with being a ward or youth dependent back into society and to their respective home environments.

The team identifies and utilizes existing strengths to establish stability within the family unit and social support system to merit a court decision to end the youth’s dependency or ward status.
