Our Services

Get Involved!



Crisis Stabilization

Day 1 at Ready for Life focuses on helping youth get back on their feet and stay there. From providing laundry and a shower in our Day Stop to food, new clothing, and housing support, our goal to help youth meet their basic needs so they can focus on the future. 



Lifeline & Support Services

You can be that “one person who cares." Mentors are life-changing for our youth. As a mentor in our Be the One program, you help brainstorm solutions, explore new possibilities, and provide the consistency our youth need to be successfully independent.



Life Skills & Learning Gaps

Our youth have big goals for their education and careers. As a volunteer at Ready for Life, you can help our youth learn the skills they need to further their education or land a job, including being accountable and setting goals that will shape their future.
