Welcome to Community Action HOME Youth & Resource Center
Why does HOME exist?
Life is full of risks for many Marion County teens. Every day they confront drugs, family dysfunction, violence, and sometimes thoughts of suicide.
However, youth are resilient. Their survival skills are strong. They may turn to each other, to family, a teacher...or to drugs, gangs, and other destructive options.
At HOME, disenfranchised youth find a safe place, caring adults, and opportunities to connect with their community in a positive way.
