Lighthouse Youth Services, Inc. received Impact 100 funding to increase the hours of operation of the Anthony House Project from 10 hours a week to 25 hours a week. This project serves homeless youth of ages 18-24 and provides a place to drop in, obtain a meal, clothing and blankets, wash their clothes, take a shower, and to use a computer and telephone. Through the Anthony House Project, homeless young men and women will have access to a registered nurse to address health issues, and an outreach worker who will encourage them to develop a treatment plan for recovery. They will additionally receive help in finding transitional housing.
