Wind Youth Services is Sacramento County’s only program serving homeless youth. Our mission is to provide supportive services and opportunities to youth experiencing homelessness as they pursue self-determined lives of stability and independence.

Through our programs and services, Wind Youth Services provides homeless and at-risk youth between the ages of 12 and 24 with basic safety net and survival services and a safe place to stay.
