The comprehensive approach of Cocoon House ensures that each young person is met where they are, physically and emotionally, to ensure the best possible outcomes for their future. Young people connect with Cocoon House staff when in our programs, in their schools, or out on the street. Parents are provided with services to help keep their teen in the home, or provide the smoothest transition possible if the teen is returning home from homelessness. This scope of service allows Cocoon House to ensure they are reaching young people and families in all possible ways to ensure that every child has a home and a future.
