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.

"Vermont’s model is elegant, simple and visionary. Our Coalition works; it challenges each professional youth worker and agency leader who participate to strive even harder, to work even smarter, to become more focused, and to make sure that youth development is front and center in each and every decision we make.” Allyson Villars, Executive Director Youth Services, Inc.
