Pivot is a nonprofit that works with youth lacking stability in their lives. They are homeless, couch homeless, alone or disengaged. Most are ages 12 to 21 with barriers in their lives without resources to overcome them and transition into self-reliant adults. Pivot services focus on meeting housing and basic needs; education and job assistance; mentoring and life skills; prevention and intervention services; and therapeutic care.
Housing/Basic Needs: There are young people who need a safe, secure place to stay as well as access to food, personal hygiene items and clothing. Pivot offers support and resources through its food pantry and clothing closets, as well as short and long-term housing solutions. Whether in the child welfare system, living on their own without parental support, formerly juvenile justice involved, or a runaway—we can provide safe, stable housing.
Education/Job Assistance: Pivot believes regardless of where a child is from or the barriers they face, they are worthy of having success in education, finding a job and planning for a career in the field they choose. At Pivot, part of each young person’s experience includes the opportunity to graduate from high school, further their education, gain vital life skills and achieve job readiness.
Prevention/Intervention: Bad decisions, environmental factors, addiction, unidentified trauma, lack of supervision and undiagnosed mental health disorders can lead youth down the wrong path. Youth are equipped to dramatically change the trajectory of their lives helping them transition from a life of fear and instability to that of hope and opportunity.
Therapeutic Care: Our licensed therapists and specialists are trained to identify adverse childhood experiences ranging from physical, emotional or sexual abuse, to community violence, parental divorce or the incarceration of a parent or guardian. Pivot can help with depression, poor nutrition, high risk behaviors, substance abuse, anxiety and grief.
