Description of original award (Fiscal Year 2008, $178,870)

Spectrum Youth and Family Services' Spectrum One Stop (SOS) will provide homeless, foster, and at-risk youth with a 13-bed emergency shelter, drop-in center, and a multi-service center offering a variety of services. Spectrum's One Stop constitutes an extremely effective method of deterring at-risk youth from a career in crime and a life in the criminal justice system. The goal is to provide shelter and support for a minimum of 140 homeless, foster, and at-risk youth (ages 16-21) to develop education, job, health and wellbeing, and life skills goals. Performance measures will include the percentage of youth who leave the program to transition to more secure and stable housing and the percentage of youth leaving with high school diploma/GED and/or employment.
