Host home program


Tahoe Youth's Host Home Program provides emergency temporary shelter placement for non-system youth under the age of 18 for up to 21 days. Host homes are certified foster families that contract with Tahoe Youth to provide respite for youth who may be thinking about running away for home, are runaways, having family conflicts, or need a little respite and prevention services to prevent the youth from running away. This time provides respite and connects the family to our counseling services in hope of family reunification or finding safe alternative placement.
