Youth Drop-In Center

Meeting the basic needs of youth facing housing instability and adversity.

The trauma of housing instability can prevent young people from meeting their basic needs and developing into responsible adults. A youth drop-in center is a place where young people between the ages of 16 to 24, who are striving for the stability of a home can find respite and safety while working to achieve their goals.

Building upon our continuum of youth resiliency services, LMM is proud to be involved in Cuyahoga County’s first YDIC. The YDIC is an initiative of A Place 4 Me, operated by LMM, and in partnership with the Sisters of Charity Foundation of Cleveland and the REACH Youth Action Board.

A drop-in center provides access to laundry, hot showers, clothing, a kitchen, and meals. It also provides a space to form relationships and community with other young people, caring adults, and supportive staff.
