About A.Y.A. Youth Collective

A.Y.A. Youth Collective envisions a community where every youth has access to a place where they belong and stable housing as a foundation for their future. We have a drop-in center for youth age 14-24 who are experiencing unsafe/unstable housing and housing units for youth age 18-24.

Drop-In hours:
Monday through Friday at noon, 1:30pm and 3pm by appointment.  Call 616-406-3945 to schedule yours today!

To look into housing options, please call 616-406-3945 to talk to a youth Advocate or schedule an appointment to learn more about about your housing options.

For Young People

If you don’t have a safe place you call home, you are not alone. No matter what your situation is, HQ is here for you. If you need a warm shower, a hot meal, or help with school, your job, or anything in between, the caring staff at HQ will support you.
