NATIONAL SUICIDE PREVENTION LINE
Our mission is to provide equitable, culturally responsive, holistic and person centered homelessness prevention services to our most At-Risk Youth ages 12-26.
During our founder Pamela Green's expansive career providing supportive services to children and youth, she observed a need for Holistic Programs to support At Risk Youth “ falling through the cracks” of mainstream interventions. At Risk Youth she encountered over the years expressed a need for access to relatable, caring, culturally competent, non predatory service providers whom would not subject them to additional trauma in spaces that should be safe. The Inhale Program is designed to offer youth a safe, nonjudgmental space to develop their sense of self while gaining necessary skills for obtaining and maintaining physical, mental, spiritual and emotional wellness.
