Possible uses and use restrictions...

Each Basic Center program is required to provide outreach to runaway and homeless youth; temporary shelter for up to fifteen days; food; clothing; individual, group and family counseling; aftercare and referrals, as appropriate. Basic Center programs are required to provide their services in residential settings for at no more than twenty (20) youth unless a state or local law or regulation requires a higher maximum to comply with licensure requirments for facilities serving child and youth. Some programs also provide part or all of their shelter services through host homes (usually private homes under contract to the centers), with counseling and referrals being provided from a central location. Basic Center programs offer shelter to youth who are less than 18 years of age and who are at risk of separation from their family. Basic Center programs must provide age appropriate services or referrals for homeless youth ages 18-21.
