Getting Involved

You are integral to our work to end youth homelessness. Just like our founders, concerned citizens who got together over 30 years ago to help young people get off the streets – you can make a real difference in young people’s lives.


Making a financial gift is the most effective way to help Larkin Street. Your funds will go where they are most needed, helping us continue to provide expert care to young people overcoming trauma, neglect or abuse on their path to self-sufficiency.
Last year, we helped more than 2,500 young people thanks to the support of generous donors like you!

Friends of Larkin Street

Our next-generation group of supporters, Friends of Larkin Street, hosts social events and volunteer activities throughout the year to raise funds and awareness for Larkin Street Youth Services. Their annual Ice Skating Party in December is a highlight among area young professionals, as are their meaningful volunteer opportunities, like planting a garden at one of Larkin Street’s housing sites.

Our dedicated volunteer base allows us to run lean and leverage more than 80% of our funding toward program-specific expenses.

All new individual and corporate/group volunteer opportunities are on hold as we restructure our offerings.

If you are interested in volunteering with us, please send an email to [email protected] and your information will be recorded.

Growth Campaign

To reach some ambitious new goals, we decided to think bigger, launching a $10 million growth campaign to fund more services, infrastructure, technology and staff.

Today, it takes more than ever to get and keep young people off the streets, so we must work harder to make sure all the supports they need are available.

Join us and help close out the campaign!
