Iowa Homeless Youth Centers

We believe within every youth is a successful adult.

 

Iowa Homeless Youth Centers (IHYC) works to eliminate homelessness among children, youth and young mothers in Polk County. We believe, with support and assistance, homeless individuals and families can live independently and attain self-sufficiency.

 

IHYC programs and staff focus on helping participants set and achieve goals in five key areas:

 

  • Education
  • Employment
  • Safe housing
  • Life skills
  • Positive community engagement

Visit our Thrive in Iowa blog to keep up to date with IHYC happenings.

IHYC is currently accepting applications for the Post-Secondary Education Retention Program (PSERP).  Find out how you can get involved here:
