SAN BERNARDINO — Terrance Stone started out with a backpack and a dream.
Part of the “dream” was a clean four-bed home on the north side of town.
Young Visionaries Youth Leadership Academy has just opened the home as a runaway and homeless youth shelter, open 24/7.
The house is the only youth shelter in the city and one of only two youth shelters in San Bernardino County, according to Young Visionaries founder and CEO Terrance Stone.
“I’m really committed to this 1,000 percent,” Stone said. “Our staff is here 24/7 and we’re always busy because we’re in the business of saving lives.”

Cook County, Illionis came in second with 60,125 identified gang members. Los Angeles County took first place with 68,208, according to FBI numbers.
Although Young Visionaries has centers in multiple states, San Bernardino is where the organization’s central office is located, and where the group orginated. The report reflects the enormous need to help at-risk youth within YVYLA’s home service area.
