Arizona Youth Partnership in April 2019 extended its program offerings in to include a Basic Center program called Lighthouse in Prescott Valley, AZ. The main focus of Lighthouse is to address the needs of runaway and homeless youth boys and their families in Yavapai County and its surrounding rural communities. Until the opening of Lighthouse, there were no homeless youth shelters in the Prescott area. The program is built on the principles of positive youth development, emphasizing the strength of each individual and family unit served per year. The center currently has four (4) beds available for emergency shelter. Lighthouse provides a safe environment for youth to regroup and chart a new course in their life. Lighthouse works with youth and their caregivers to create an individualized life plan to either reunite youth with their families or another trusted adult. Components of the plan may include personal goals, counseling, job skills, drug and alcohol education and academics.
