Nika's Place Will Become a Reality for Homeless Teens
Date:5/6/2013

Pleasanton, California (PRWEB) May 06, 2013

HomeAid Northern California and Alameda Family Services celebrated the Groundbreaking of the renovated site for “Nika’s Place”, Alameda County’s only emergency shelter for runaway, thrown away and homeless teens between the ages of 13 and 18. The new site, located in downtown Oakland, will require approximately $740,000 in renovations to bring it up to building code standards. Once completed, the new building will expand to include a transitional living program for commercially sexually exploited female minors and a support center for high risk youth. The purchase of the building was made possible by funds from the Alameda County Board of Supervisors through the leadership of Health Care Services Agency Director Alex Briscoe.

The project will be named “Nika’s Place” after Nika St. Claire who was the shelter director for the past ten years. Nika St. Claire was killed in an automobile accident in Arizona, along with her daughter. Nika was a guiding light and mainstay of the DreamCatcher Homeless Shelter where she was a source of inspiration to dozens of runaway, homeless and sexually exploited teenagers. Nika helped DreamCatcher realize a long-standing goal to expand its shelter and services with this new facility.

A program of Alameda Family Services, DreamCatcher has been a safety net for youth who do not have the family, support system or necessary life skills, tools and resources to live on their own. DreamCatcher is one of the few resources available to the estimated 300 youth who are homeless or couch surfing on any given night in Alameda County. Three out of four leave their homes because of abuse or neglect. According to Marcus, aged 14, “DreamCatcher
