Help VYH Put Together LV Shelter Welcome Baskets

LV Shelter Welcome baskets

Valley Youth House’s Lehigh Valley Shelter serves any young person experiencing homelessness or housing instability in Pennsylvania ages 12-17.  Our Shelter utilizes an individualized, brief counseling and crisis intervention model that services include case management, individual, family and group counseling, life skills education, adventure based experiential education and recreational activities, and therapeutic follow-up and aftercare services.

When youth arrive at our Shelter, often their only possessions are the clothes they are wearing.  Our staff would like to have Welcome Baskets for when youth arrive so that they can be given a warm welcome and a basket of items they can call their own.

The items below (and suggested brands with estimated prices) are requested for the Welcome Baskets.  Our goal is to fill 100 Welcome Baskets by Thanksgiving.  If you would like to donate any of the items below or donate a full basket(s), please drop off at 3400 High Point Blvd., Bethlehem, PA 18017 M-F, 8 am – 5 pm.   Contact Emily at econners@valleyyouthhouse.org or 610-820-0166 ex. 1318 with any questions. Thank you!
