To help combat youth homelessness in Detroit, nonprofit Detroit Phoenix Center has partnered with Methodist Children’s Home Society to provide 24 units where young people can live temporarily.
The partnership will provide 12 transitional housing units and 12 rapid rehousing units.
Young people can stay rent free for up to two years — and the center will connect them to employment, mental health and academic services funded by the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development.
According to a report released by Wayne State University, 16% of Detroit’s youth population have dealt with housing instability and nearly 11% are homeless.
