Youth On Their Own (YOTO) supports the high school graduation and continued success of homeless youth by providing financial assistance, basic human needs, and guidance.
What We Do
YOTO serves homeless Pima County (Arizona) youth in grades 6-12 by providing financial assistance (a monthly stipend and emergency bill payment assistance), basic human needs (free food, hygiene products, clothing, school supplies and more), and guidance.
Last year, YOTO served 2,054 students - an 18% increase over the prior year. The graduation rate among YOTO students is currently 82% - 4% higher than the AZ state average of 78%.
