Street Talk Outreach Program (STOP):
STOP Peer Youth Internship Program provides youth transitioning out of homelessness with employment experience while supporting their peers. Youth Interns work for 10 hours per week at a rate of $15.00 per hour for six months of service, assisting on outreach and supporting the Teen Feed meal program. This program enables interns to save funds for rent, providing valuable experience and employment reference while building connections with their peers. In 2015 STOP case managers helped more kids into housing than in any prior year.
Service Links for Youth (SLY):
SLY is a case management program—we call it “Support Coordination”—designed to help youth who are ready to begin the transition to life off the streets. Unlike traditional “case management,” SLY was designed as a youth-centered support program that affirms the strengths of each participant as they meet self-identified goals. The Support Coordinator builds a relationship with each youth to learn what types of resources will help them best succeed. SLY is unique in its focus on meeting youth on the streets and in programs, and it serves a broader range of youth—ages 13 to 25—than most other programs.
Youth Access to Care (YAC):
YAC is an integrated component of both the STOP and SLY programs which provides outreach, enrollment, and navigation services for homeless, at-risk, and food insecure young people in need of healthcare. Through Washington State’s Medicaid expansion, nearly all of Teen Feed’s guests are newly eligible for both medical and dental insurance. Youth Access to Care networks with local mobile units and healthcare navigators to encourage young people to review their healthcare options, enroll in health insurance, and leverage new health benefits to obtain preventative care and address preexisting mental and physical health conditions. Teen Feed is a contracted In-Person Assister Organization working in partnership with the Washington Health Benefit Exchange and Washington Healthplanfinder.
