Peace for the Streets by Kids from the Streets (PSKS).
Homeless youth know best what they need; all homeless youth have gifts and talents; and entrusting power to youth restores their dignity and can have a transformative effect in their lives.
Shelter and support services at PSKS prioritize human safety, health and security for Seattle area homeless youth and young adults. We offer education, employment and housing support to help participants get back on their feet and become engaged, self sufficient members of the community.
We exist to support homeless and at-risk youth and young adults to become empowered to lead positive and self-sufficient lives. Our philosophy and practice of inclusion has allowed us to develop low access barriers to engage young people who are at risk of falling through gaps in community services.
Meet some of the PSKS youth and young adults by viewing “Endurance“, produced by Conjunction Arts. Endurance is video capture of the theoretical invisibility of Seattle’s homeless youth voiced over with the real stories of why and how they ended up where they are.
