What We Do
Program & Services
Our overall goal is to change the pattern of abuse in the lives of women and children. Touching Heart commitment to providing a comprehensive, centralized base of support for women and children is evident by the programs and services provided for the women and children who seek our assistance.
The purpose of this center is to give women a one-stop resource place where renewing of their minds and spirits becomes possible as soon as they walk through the doors. The center will have a private library, child care area, computer lab, workshop and conference rooms, day rooms, and an education center.
Residential Program- The Brooks J. Young Home (Coming Soon)
Operated in a confidential location of Macomb County, our residential program is a two year transitional home with the ability to accommodate 21 domestic violence survivors and homeless women 24 hours a day, 365 days a year. Residents receive food, clothing and medical assistance to address their physical needs. Additionally, individual and group counseling, crisis intervention, domestic violence education, legal and social services advocacy are provided to address their emotional needs.
Touching Heart’s children’s program provides children of all ages a safe, nurturing atmosphere where they are offered individual counseling to raise self-esteem and educational group services that focus on prevention and intervention of family violence. Additionally, mothers receive family counseling promoting positive and effective parenting skills. Children may attend local public schools while in residence.
This program seeks to build community awareness and support by providing domestic violence education, homeless prevention and resolutions, and training to the community.
Prevention & Education Program
The program provides domestic violence education, presentations, training and other resources to schools in the community on topics such as Teen Dating Violence and Healthy Relationships.
