The Family and Youth Services Bureau (FYSB) is accepting applications for the Basic Center Program (BCP). The Basic Center Program is one of the programs authorized under Part A of the Runaway and Homeless Youth (RHY) Act of 1974 to address runaway and homeless youth problems. Basic Center Programs provide an alternative to involving runaway and homeless youth in the law enforcement, child welfare, mental health, and juvenile justice systems. Each program must provide a safe and appropriate shelter and individual, family, and group counseling, as appropriate. Optional services that programs may provide are: Street-based services; Home-based services for families with youth at risk of separation from the family; Drug abuse education and prevention services; and At the request of runaway and homeless youth, testing for sexually transmitted diseases. Each BCP is required to provide to runaway and homeless youth; temporary shelter for up to fifteen (15) days including room and board; individual, group and family counseling (as appropriate); and aftercare and referrals, as appropriate. Some programs also provide some or all of their services through host homes (usually private homes under contract to the centers) with counseling and referrals being provided. Basic Center programs shelter youth through 18 years of age.
