YDS Crisis Shelter
Our Crisis Shelter Program serves youth up to the age of 17. Beds are available to youth in need of temporary emergency shelter. Youth can be placed for up to 30 days.  Youth from any where in Wyoming may recieve the services of the program free of charge.  The cost of placement is paid for in part by a grant from the Department of Family Services. 

The goal of the program is to provide intervention services and reunify the child with his/her family. Referrals can be made by individuals, parents, guardians, social workers, therapists, law enforcement officers, and the courts. Youth can refer themselves to the program. 

The immediate physical and emotional needs of the youth are addressed at intake. Referrals for additional follow-up services are made to appropriate agencies before the youth is released from the program. Medical needs are also assessed and referrals made to appropriate health care providers.
