Tumbleweed Center for Youth Development


Tumbleweed Center for Youth Development is a private, nonprofit community based organization founded in 1972 by several civic service organizations to provide emergency shelter and services for runaway youth. Tumbleweed’s youth crisis shelter, Open Hands, opened in 1975; a short-term crisis intervention program for homeless and runaway youth ages 11 to 18. Since its inception, this program has provided the only emergency shelter for non-system youth of this age group in Maricopa County. Tumbleweed services expanded in 1980 to include a detention alternative group home for boys, and in 1986 independent living for homeless youth was added. In 1990 we began street outreach services for homeless youth living on the streets. In October of 2002 Tumbleweed opened our Learning Center; an educational and vocational center for youth served in other Tumbleweed programs and at risk youth in the community.
