SRQ YMCA Offers Some CLASS for Homeless Youth

As the good folks at the Sarasota YMCA saw the need to address the number of homeless youth they were serving through their Schoolhouse Link program, they decided to take their service a step further. Integrating transitional housing for youth who need supportive housing in order to finish school, the YMCA started SRQ CLASS to provide Community Living for At-risk Student Success. Listen in as Steve McAllister and Gonzo Thompson speak with Karen Mersinger and Ellen McLaughlin from the Sarasota YMCA about the program and how the City of Sarasota might be able to draw upon the wisdom of their experience as they move forward with their Housing First model to address adult homelessness.
