Lineage Project delivers programs to children and teens in a family homeless shelter. We also reach young people living in transitional housing through our work in high-needs public schools. Our program provides a safe space with caring adult role models, developing the resilience of young people facing myriad challenges such as trauma and family instability.
The Village Voice published a feature article and video about our work inside a family homeless shelter.
