Kim Rinehardt, Program Director for Mason County HOST (Housing Options for Students in Transition) visited us today and gave us valuable information on this important and vital program that 
offers support to goal-driven homeless students ages 16-21 by encouraging community-based housing and education advocacy. Students live with volunteer HOST families or in supportive transitional housing.  Participants are mentored by our Program Coordinator, located at CHOICE High School. Participants receive financial assistance, life skills development, and educational support to see them into independent adulthood.  Students can receive transition services for 6 to 12 months after graduating high school or GED. There are many homeless young adults in Mason County who want to earn their diplomas, GEDs or technical certifications but the day-to-day crisis of homelessness is getting in the way.
