Daybreak operates the Dayton, OH region’s only emergency shelter, open 24/7, for youth ages 10 to 19. Daybreak provides shelter, food, clothing, counseling, safety, and stability to more than 200 youth each year. Daybreak’s housing program is the region’s only program designed to move homeless youth ages 18 to 24 out of homelessness, poverty, under-education, and crisis and into housing, financial independence, educational achievement, and self-sufficiency.
The organization’s street outreach program makes contact with more than 1,500 youth each year who are couch-hopping or living on street and looking for help. Daybreak will provide these youth with basic necessities while helping them find a safe place to live. Daybreak’s employment program helps these youths develop the skills necessary to get and keep jobs. Work-readiness training is provided at Lindy & Company, their gourmet pet treat bakery.learn more about the light this organization is bringing into the heart of young adults at: www.daybreakdayton.org.
