The Los Angeles Youth Network (LAYN) opened its doors to a new home for foster and homeless youth in Hollywood. The 10,000 square foot 1919 Craftsman style home replaces LAYN’s current 30-year old barrack style emergency shelter and will enable over 300 foster youth (ages 12-17) a year to receive high quality enhanced services in a safe and nurturing environment.

“We are thrilled to be able to move our emergency shelter into this comforting and
lovely environment,” said Mark Supper, Executive Director, Los Angeles Youth Network. “We see kids who are the most traumatized. They come to us right after
they have been removed from their home or a difficult foster placement. It is
critical that the environment in which they find themselves provides a sense of
comfort and safety. This new building will do just that.”

As the only organization in Hollywood that provides residential care to homeless youth ages 12-21, LAYN provides shelter and a home to foster and homeless youth
with programs that enable these abused, neglected and homeless youth to become
self-sufficient adults. The new residence will be able to accommodate the effective
delivery of LAYN’s full continuum of care. It’s eight bedrooms, art therapy room,
education/computer lab, family reunification room, living room, dining room
recreation area, and youth services building will provide ample space for 17 youth
to simultaneously receive a multitude of vital services to help them overcome past
trauma while providing an improved quality of life.
