Description of original award (Fiscal Year 2004, $246,917)

Tennessee Valley Youth and Family Services (TVYFS) and the Junior League of Huntsville will collaborate to implement the Teen Shelter of Huntsville which will provide crisis counseling and/or temporary shelter to 35 runaway and homeless youth annually. The program's goal is to assist youth in finding stable living situations and, whenever possible, reuniting with their families. The shelter's strategy will include engaging in community outreach and education and providing shelter services and counseling to both youth and their families. TVYFS will report on performance outputs such as number of youth served and number of youth successfully reunited with families. Performance measures will include pre- and post surveys designed to assess youths' self esteem and an evaluation of shelter services and staff performance. TVYFS will report their findings to OJJDP in the grantee's Categorical Assistance Progress Reports. NCA/NCF
