The Brooks J. Young Home
The Brooks J. Young is a transitional housing program for domestic abuse survivors and their children in Michigan. Eligible families may live in the home for up to two years. During this time, these women and children receive the education, training and spiritual support they need to prepare them to lead a self-sufficient and independent living.
Staff members also assist with advocacy, referral to community resources, and follow-up support. Assessment and counseling are provided to both women and children to help address the long-term effects of trauma associated with domestic violence. Clients are assisted in formulating a workable plan to achieve their goals at their own pace. They are encouraged to participate in a savings program and are urged to consider home ownership as a goal.
Those who complete the program successfully are eligible to receive a 100 percent match up to $1000 from the Brooks J. Young Scholarship Program.
The home will open Summer 2018
