VCRHYP’s statewide network ensures that youth have guaranteed access to age-appropriate emergency shelter in every region of Vermont.
VCRHYP services are grounded in Resiliency Theory and The Positive Youth Development approach to serving youth. Positive Youth Development understands that all young people need support, guidance, and opportunities during adolescence.
Services We Provide
VCRHYP agencies provide three critical types of services that act as a crucial safety net for Vermont youth and their families: Transitional Living, Runaway and Family Stabilization, and Street Outreach.
VCRHYP programs deliver critical safety nets to at-risk youth, while providing the State of Vermont and taxpayers with an effective, efficient, & economical alternative. Learn how our efforts have produced tangible outcomes.

Current economic problems that affect almost all Vermonters – high housing costs, rising prices for food, inadequate public transportation, lack of jobs – take a much greater toll on young people lacking the safety net of family, education or work experience.
