Families interested in providing short-term stable housing to young people are encouraged to attend an informational meeting on the YMCA Host Home program, 6 to 7 p.m., Tuesday, March 21, at the Snoqualmie Valley YMCA, 35018 SE Ridge St., Snoqualmie.

On any night in King County, more than 800 youth and young adults experience homelessness. Shelter beds and resources are limited, leaving most of these young adults without access to food or safe housing.

The YMCA Host Home program matches young adults, ages 18 to 24, who are unstably housed with a supportive host family. Host families are volunteers from the community who offer a room in their homes to provide safe, short-term housing and support to young people as they work toward independence.
