Runaway Homeless Youth Shelter

David Ross
Program Director

As a Human Service Practitioner, David feels it’s incumbent upon him to share his accomplishments and lessons with those who follow on the path of successful re-entry. His ultimate goal is to go from “The Pen… to PENN.” David firmly believes that no matter how low we get in life, we can always change things around, because we are greater than our circumstances.

CTS Runaway Homeless Youth Shelter

To open in the spring of 2016, this newly-renovated shelter in a stone home is located at 3418 North 19th Street only five blocks from the CTS education and training center. Youth ages 13 through 17 are eligible. Capacity is 22. Youth can stay for 3 weeks and receive full services including food, beds, lounge, game and exercise room, washer and dryer, case management, life skills education, medical testing and, if qualified, enrollment in other CTS workforce development or college admissions assistance programs. Expect to serve about 340 per year. Funded by the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services.
