Your monthly donation gives a bed to a young person on the streets.


This is Jayo.

A little more than a year ago, Jayo was unemployed with no place to stay at night. Thanks to the support of monthly donors like the Home Team, he got a bed in The Nest, our 15-bed transitional shelter.

He began working as a Street Bean apprentice and eventually found a second job with a local retailer. Having a bed to come home to every night and a community that believed in him didn’t give Jayo goals – it just made achieving his goals a reality.

He’s now living in his own apartment and working two jobs, using his free time to write and record his own music. Because The Nest was a stepping stone off the streets and into a new season of life, he no longer has to spend his nights on the streets – he simply goes home.

This is the kind of story the Home Team makes possible.

What Home Team Members Are Saying

  • We give because New Horizons' mission is focused on a very vulnerable group of youth that need an advocate and friend.

  • New Horizons fills a void for many young people on the streets navigating life without a family support system.

  • Youth programs have always been of interest to us. We give because young people face many challenges today even when they are in stable family situations, but especially when families are dysfunctional or not present.

How Youth Have Been Impacted in the Nest

  • The Nest provides structure, which motivates you to keep working on your goals. I like that I can relax on the couch, work on my music, watch movies from time to time, get a shower whenever I want.

  • I have been through a lot and continue to go through a lot, but this shelter, having somewhere I can safely go at night, is one of the biggest blessings I could've asked for.

  • My favorite things about The Nest are the people there, the serious & beautiful opportunity it gives, and the safety it offers.
