Unconditional support transforms lives.

Our Mission

We reach out to homeless youth and young adults at their point of need, and work with them to build healthy and fulfilling lives.

Who We Are

Relationships are at the core of everything we do at ATC. We are honored to have a diverse and vibrant community of clients, staff, board members, volunteers, and donors.

What We Do

We bring our services directly onto the streets, and cultivate long-term, unconditional relationships with young people who would otherwise be disconnected from consistent support.

Outreach: We walk the streets of the Mission and Downtown/Tenderloin to reach disconnected youth on their own turf. We hand out basic necessities like food, socks, and hygiene supplies, and slowly build counseling relationships with youth.

1-to-1: We meet with clients 1-to-1. We listen to them talk about anything they want, with no agenda and no judgment. We help them identify goals, figure out who they want to be, and how to become that person.

Resources: We partner with other organizations, connecting our clients with resources such as jobs, housing, education, health care, and mental health services.

Advocacy: We work with other organizations and the government at the city and state levels to improve the continuum of support for all disconnected young people.
