WHO WE ARE
Change starts here.
KIC-IT began in 2011 as the need for homeless youth services was identified. KIC-IT collaborates with other organizations to support youth, ages 16-26, in breaking the cycle of homelessness by helping them achieve sustainable life change.
What we do.
We believe that life change happens upon the foundation of healthy relationships. Building relationships, establishing boundaries, & setting goals helps youth redefine their life path. By connecting them to services, skill development, & improved relationships our youth will experience growth - socially, emotionally, mentally.
Helping youth develop a strong foundation is the key to true life transformation & independence.
YOUTH DEVELOPMENT PROGRAM
Youth Ally Program.
Youth Ally for Homeless Education & Prevention. (YAHEP)
KIC-IT wants to help youth establish sustainable life change. We believe a person centered approach that meets individual needs is the best path to success. Clients meet 1:1 with case managers, and through relationships work towards achieving goals.
At the drop-in center, youth can do laundry, eat, use computers, and hang out with staff & friends. We also offer pantry & hygiene items. Clients may receive assistance from our case managers and administrative support.
Reinforcing our Commitment.
With our organization’s mission always in mind, we strive to find new strategies for assisting our clients. KIC-IT offers monthly Youth Action Nights that provide a meal, while developing skills that promote independence & personal development.
