When YOTO began in 1986, it was a tiny grassroots organization staffed entirely by volunteers. With the support of our YOTO Family, we’ve grown to serve thousands of youth experiencing homelessness every year.

We’ve become so big, in fact, we’re bursting at the seams! But that’s about to change…

YOTO has found and purchased its “forever home”!

After years of searching, YOTO has purchased a new property at 2525 N Country Club Road. At 54% larger than our current space, the new building will allow us to continue to help youth experiencing homelessness and housing insecurity in Tucson graduate from high school and achieve their educational and professional goals!

Now, how about some more good news?

Angel Charity for Children, Inc. announced on Wednesday that they have selected Youth On Their Own as a recipient for their 2022 major fundraising campaign!

The wonderful women at Angel Charity for Children have committed to raising $750,000 to fund the renovation of YOTO’s new home, making it safe and welcoming for youth and expanding the services we offer to youth experiencing homelessness in our community! With the Angels’ support, YOTO will be moving into our new “forever home” as soon as the end of the year!

Sending a huge THANK YOU to Angel Charity & our amazing YOTO Family for making this joyful news possible!

Youth On Their Own is excited to welcome two new members to our Board of Directors
