Larkin Street Youth Services is a nonprofit empowering young people to move beyond homelessness.

Founded in 1984, we’ve helped over 80,000 young adults in San Francisco by providing a continuum of healthcare, housing, employment, and education services.

As San Francisco’s largest nonprofit provider for young people experiencing homelessness, we are supported by private donors including foundations, corporations, and individuals, as well as government funding. We’re also part of the movement to end youth homelessness on a national scale through policy partnerships with national organizations and fellow nonprofits.

Vision & Mission

To end youth homelessness by making it rare, brief, and one-time.

To create a continuum of services that inspires youth to move beyond the street. We nurture potential, promote dignity and support bold steps by all.
