The mission of Robyne’s Nest is to ensure identified at-risk and homeless students in our local community find the nourishment, encouragement and focus for a brighter, confident future to complete high school and on to college.

In recent years, it has been noted that many students are struggling when it comes to basic needs and support from their parents. Parents are choosing not to put their children’s needs above their own issues causing lack of food, housing, school support, even safety. The answer is not as simple as calling the police or CPS (Child Protective Services), as this may only aggravate the problem. Many of these students want help and that is why they continue to go to school looking for some security, routine, and a place to belong. Robyne’s Nest helps provide the resources for school administrators to take care of these students and create a path to successful completion of high school.

Surrounded by drugs, homelessness and human trafficking, this is a proactive step to keep our desperate youth out of these three areas.
