Proposed Northampton Teen Housing Expansion

The proposed NTH building is currently under construction adjacent to our recently renovated teen housing building in Northampton, MA. This building will expand housing options for youth in Hampshire County who are experiencing homelessness, as well as provide a permanent program space for agency staff.

Our Mission

DIAL/SELF helps young people become independent by connecting them with housing, employment, education and civic opportunities.

Our Philosophy

We believe that all youth possess unique strengths which are enhanced by community support and collaboration and that all youth should have the right to exercise choice in their own lives.
