Youth Food Shelf


Eagle Brook Kid Packs (4)

CEAP’s No Hassles Youth Food Shelf  welcomes youth and young adults ages 12 to 24, and comes at a time when homelessness is at its highest. Over 450 children in our community hop from couch to couch every night, relying on the generosity of friends and extended family for food and shelter.

The No Hassles Youth Food Shelf is a program of CEAP and is staffed by YMCA Outreach Workers. This partnership affords youth and young adults not only a unique, no-questions-asked place to get food and clothing, but a safe place to get additional resources and support.

Youth and young adults may walk in any Wednesday from 3pm to 6pm.
