Center for Aspiring Youth

For more than a decade, The Children’s Cabinet has been providing Safe Place crisis intervention and outreach services collaborating with community partners.

The Center for Aspiring Youth (CAY) opened in February 2017 to provide a family-friendly living environment and wraparound services for teens ages 13-17 that need a safe place to stay.

The CAY alows youth to:

  • Benefit from a safe and stable living environment
  • Gain independence and/or safely reconnect with family
  • Find stability through one or more of The Children’s Cabinet’s programs
  • Reach personal goals
  • Support employment or educational pursuits
