How We Help

We believe we can help.


Iowa Homeless Youth Centers (IHYC) offers a variety of programs and facilities that teach homeless youth, ages 16-25, to live independently and become self-sufficient.


The youth we serve are non-system involved, meaning that they are not placed or directly supported by a governmental payment agency.


IHYC is often a last resort for older runaway and homeless youth who have exhausted community resources, family and friends. 


Program offerings include:
