Roosevelt Park, Grand Rapids, MI
Our Roosevelt Park house is our first home. We've housed young people here since 2013. This property is a duplex that houses mentors in the bottom apartment and four young people, ages 18 to 24, in the top apartment. This house is an agent of personal and community change, holding community dinners and demonstrating the great things that can happen when people come together to make something incredible.
We can now house 19 youth at one time in 6 different properties! We have one project still under construction in the Roosevelt Park neighborhood. Once that house is completed, we'll be able to house 21 youth at once! Thank you for your continued support in helping us grow our housing options for young people!
A Continuum of services
We know that young people who are experiencing homelessness need a continuum of services to meet their diverse needs. Included in this continuum are things like scattered-site housing, host homes, shelters, transitional housing, rapid re-housing and permanent supportive housing. We hope to provide different pieces to fill this continuum within the coming years. For more information about the suggested continuum of services, visit the National Network 4 Youth's Proposed Strategies to End Youth Homelessness here (page 33).
