True Resource for Vulnerable Youth

Cocoon House provides Street Outreach, Housing, and Homeless Prevention Services to youth who are runaway, foster youth, or those who are being forced out of home. The people who thrive here really care about being a nurturing presence to youth who have multiple traumas. Staff are encouraged to use their own passions, be they in education, music, art, cooking, etc., to connect with youth and provide them opportunities to grow into well rounded young adults. Co-workers are enthusiastic, have a good sense of humor, and want to be part of a community. Shifts vary from enjoyable to stressful, but Cocoon House offers a lot of PTO and encourages self-care.
