Refer a youth
Do you know a young person who could benefit from an empowering job training program?
We serve youth and young adults, ages 16-24, who are experiencing homelessness, out of school, involved with DCF/DMH/DYS/DTA, on probation, or struggling with compounding risk factors. At More Than Words, youth earn a paycheck and develop soft skills, while receiving compassionate accountability, support, and training from caring adults who believe in their resilience, abilities and potential. We stay in close contact with collaterals – parents, caseworkers, etc. – and proactively support youth for at least two years after they graduate.
