The heart of our mission is not to interrupt homelessness, but rather to end it permanently for those in our care. Our work is internationally recognized and sets a high standard for innovative and effective care for young people experiencing homelessness. Larkin Street consistently achieves proven, measurable results, including:
- Three out of four youth who complete Larkin Street’s programs exit street life.
- More than 80% of funds raised go directly to support our programming.
- For every dollar that Larkin Street invests in changing the trajectory of a young person’s life, society yields eight times that amount in saved costs or social benefits (Bain & Co., 2009).
