Youth Opportunity Center

Street Outreach Services (SOS) offers street-based assistance to runaway, homeless, and at-risk teens, including support, referrals, and crisis intervention. SOS staff focus their efforts on high schools, homeless shelters and on the streets of Lincoln to connect with homeless youth.

The Youth Opportunity Center (YOC) is located in downtown Lincoln to provide our community’s homeless youth with a safe, welcoming environment where they can have a meal, get basic hygiene items, do their laundry, and obtain other resources.
