About HQ

HQ is a drop-in center in Grand Rapids, Michigan for youth between the ages of 14 and 24 who are experiencing unsafe or unstable housing. We believe that everyone should be celebrated for who they are, as they are. At HQ, basic resources are available to youth with no strings attached. We rely on community partners and volunteers to provide critical resources that help break the cycle of homelessness in our community.
