LSYS’ Diamond Youth Shelter (DYS) is a renovated, tri-level emergency residential house located in San Francisco’s scenic Haight/Panhandle district. Serving up to 20 youth in dormitory-style housing between the ages of 12-17, our goal is provide youth with a “home away from home” during their crisis. Length of stay ranges from a few days to a few months depending on the circumstances of each youth’s situation.

Some take-away facts about Diamond: •Provides housing services for an average of 15-20 unduplicated youth per month •Serves home-cooked meals by staff and the many volunteers who donate their services •Offers a familial environment whereby youth receive 24/7 residential counseling support •Provides each youth with intensive case management support •Is unlike any shelter you’d imagine.
