The Hive is a thriving community, ultimately helping young people successfully transition into adulthood, with an intersectional approach to building systems of care and support across six areas. 

Young people ages 15-25 who need supportive, transitional housing will live at The Hive.
Health & Wellness
Healing the mind and body will be prioritized at The Hive through community-based, clinical practice. 
Alternative education, G.E.D. prep, and vocational training will sustain a young person's educational path. 
Arts & Culture
Creative expression, artistic practice, and cultural vibrancy will be embedded throughout. 
Emerging entrepreneurs will build their business skills toward financial sustainability. 
Restorative practice
We will learn how to repair harm within ourselves and each other without replicating further harm.
