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.
