Teen Living Center
Davis County Teen Living Center
Many teens in Davis County face homelessness and its negative effects on their education and well-being. The Teen Residential Center is a supportive and supervised environment that offers food, shelter, clothing and emotional and mental resources to teens. It offers temporary housing to displaced students in crisis. The goal of the center is to keep students in school while equipping them with lifelong skills as they transition to adulthood.
The center is operated by a third-party nonprofit organization with Davis School District, Layton City and Davis County acting as coordinating partners in accessing key community resources. The funding for the construction and operations of the center will come from public/private partnership, individual and corporate donors and grant funding.
Students ages 12-18 who want to access the center must complete a referral process and meet certain requirements for placement and continued eligibility. At the center, students will have access to various services such as school district student services, Davis County social services, post-secondary and employment preparation, life skills training, basic necessities and student mentors and advocates.
The Teen Residential Center is more than just a place to stay. It's a place to grow. It's a place to learn. It's a place to belong.
