Program 1

Unaccompanied Youth

Palmetto Place Children’s Shelter also provides housing and programming to unaccompanied youth, with support from the United Way of the Midlands. We are the only shelter in the Midlands that has beds reserved for homeless and unaccompanied teenagers. As part of the Unaccompanied Youth Program, we teach life skills to prepare teens to live independently after graduating high school. By creating a supportive environment, our teens develop long-term plans and take steps toward meeting their goals for education and employment, while also strengthening their interpersonal skills. Some of the skills we teach include applying for jobs and college, opening a bank account and managing money, going grocery shopping and preparing meals, and signing a lease, as well as many others.
