Cocoon House

Because every child deserves a home

More than 34% of the total homeless population is under the age of 24. Cocoon House is a non-profit that conducts outreach to, and provides short and long term housing for homeless and at-risk young people, including their children. Cocoon House empowers young people, families, and the community to break the cycle of homelessness through outreach, housing, and prevention. Parents of teens can also find support for themselves and their families at Cocoon House so that young people do not become homeless.

Our Approach

The comprehensive approach of Cocoon House ensures that each young person is met where they are, physically and emotionally, to ensure the best possible outcomes for their future.  Young people connect with Cocoon House staff when in our programs, in their schools, or out on the street.  Parents are provided with services to help keep their teen in the home, or provide the smoothest transition possible if the teen is returning home from homelessness.  This scope of service allows Cocoon House to ensure they are reaching young people and families in all possible ways to ensure that every child has a home and a future.
