Community Council Casa Youth Shelter

Our mission is to provide temporary shelter for runaways and youth in crisis, enabling them to come through the crisis with increased personal strength and a sense of renewal while in a supportive environment with family reunification as a primary goal.

In 1978, Myldred E. Jones, a retired Navy commander, decided that Southern California needed a safe place for runaway and throwaway youth, who at that time had few places to go. She believed that no child should be living on the streets, under freeway overpasses, worrying about their safety and their next meal. So, at the young age of 69 years, Myldred founded Casa Youth Shelter.
