Huckleberry Youth Programs, the nation's first shelter for runaways, opened its doors in 1967 as young people from across the country arrived in San Francisco during the Summer of Love. Huckleberry's Haight-Ashbury residence became a home and support system for some of the new arrivals, who had fled their families and risked arrest for remaining on the streets. Fifty years later, Huckleberry has served more than 180,000 at-risk youth in San Francisco and Marin. We discuss the organization's past and present work caring for Bay Area youth and families.
