Early in December, Chautauqua Opportunities, Inc.’s Safe House in Jamestown received a warm donation from Shults Nissan Subaru of Jamestown. Site Supervisor Ashley Kubis received 80 blankets that will be given to youth staying at the Safe House or the Transitional Independent Living Program (TILP) apartments.
The Safe House is a 12-bed runaway and homeless youth shelter that is licensed by the NYS Office of Children and Family Services. Homeless youth under the age of 18 may stay up to 21 days while staff work to reunite the family or find other appropriate living arrangements. Youth ages 16 – 21 who are homeless can stay in the TILP apartments for up to 18 months and learn independent living skills while working or going to school.
Many thanks to Berverly Lubi and Shults Nissan Subaru for their generous donation to support homeless youth.
