Youth and Outreach Services


Open Doors: Runaway and Homeless Youth Services

Open Doors is a Runaway and Homeless Youth program for Tompkins County.  We provide services to youth up to age 21 (and their families) who have run away or are at-risk of running away and are interested in reunifying with family.  

Therapeutic Mentoring programs for Youth

Dispositional Alternatives Program (DAP) & Rural Outreach Program (ROP) provide case management, mentoring and skill-building in recreational groups for youth ages 8 to 17 struggling with mental or behavioral issues.

Community Outreach Worker Program

The Community Outreach Worker Program is supported by the City of Ithaca, Tompkins County, and the Downtown Business Alliance. Our goal is to ensure a welcoming and inclusive environment enjoyable to everyone, in the State Street Corridor from the Commons to Route 13, and extending on Cayuga Street from the Library to Dewitt Park.
