Safety Net Shelter

Runaway & Youth Homeless Shelter

To receive services, please contact Bill Wilson Center at (408) 243-0222 and ask to speak to the Safety Net Shelter Intake Counselor.

Bill Wilson Center’s Safety Net Shelter provides short-term emergency shelter for youth (ages 12-17) who are homeless, have run away or are in need of a safe place. 

The primary goal of the program is to reunite youth with their families whenever possible, prevent future problems, and stabilize the lives of young people to keep them safe.  While staying at the Shelter, youth receive case management, family counseling, life skills training, recreational therapy and linkages to community support services. 

Basic responsibilities of youth staying at the Shelter include participating in school, recreational activities, counseling and following house rules such as maintaining a clean bedroom and completing daily chores. 

All services are provided in a home-like atmosphere that operates 24/7 with staff onsite to support our youth.
