What is KATS

KATS  (Keep Area Teens Safe) is a not-for-profit 501(c)(3) youth shelter care  facility serving runaway and homeless youth as a bridge to services for  kids in unstable situations in Marathon County.  We will provide safe  and secure housing, meals, case management including connection to  mentorship and academic support, and other community services for youth  in central Wisconsin.  Our focus is youth ages 12 – 17.

Our Plan

We’ll  provide a welcoming transitional home for up to eight teens at any  given time who have encountered homelessness.  Our home will serve as a  safe haven for up to 20 or more days while our outreach staff work to  secure a long term, safe living environment for the teens.

The Goal

We aim to keep teens off the street to decrease the risk for trafficking  or drug addiction and to offer the services they need to succeed.
