Mason County HOST Program like all other counties in Washington State have unaccompanied homeless youth. These youth want to be safely housed but because of situations out of their control they find themselves homeless but not hopeless.
The Mason County HOST Program offers youth ages 16-21 support in eliminating homelessness.

Participant’s in the HOST program receive:
Assistance locating a HOST home
Mentoring from staff (executive director, case manager, volunteers)
Educational supports (tutoring and college planning)
Independent living skills training
Financial management training
Systemic support and advocacy
