Youth Supportive Housing

Arbor Circle’s Youth Supportive Housing aims to not only offer immediate aid but also guide these young individuals towards a sustainable future. Through personalized counseling and other services, we engage them in understanding their needs and building essential life skills. We then collaborate in identifying and setting achievable goals, creating a comprehensive plan for their pursuit. Our ultimate objective is to foster resilience, self-reliance, and the ability to navigate life’s challenges independently.

Housing and Beyond: Holistic Services for Youth in Need

Understanding that each youth’s journey and needs are unique, we offer a range of services beyond traditional counseling and case management. We extend employment services to boost employability and self-sustainability, and also offer limited transitional housing for those experiencing or at risk of homelessness. Our Host Homes program addresses the housing needs of 18 to 20-year-olds by connecting them with caring adults who provide safe housing and support in both Kent and Ottawa Counties. Additionally, through our Scattered Site Apartments and Rapid Rehousing initiatives, we further ensure housing support for youth in need.

Youth Supportive Housing includes:

  • Personalized Counseling and Case Management: Comprehensive, individualized counseling services aimed at understanding each youth’s unique needs and creating a sustainable plan for the future.
  • Employment Services: Focused support to enhance employability skills and facilitate successful transition into the workforce.
  • Host Homes: Safe housing and supportive environment provided by trained adult volunteers in Kent and Ottawa Counties for youth aged 18-20.
  • Scattered Site Apartments: Housing support for 18 to 20-year-old youth experiencing homelessness, facilitated through apartments leased by Arbor Circle.
  • Rapid Rehousing: Immediate housing support through collaborative partnerships with other homeless-serving agencies within Kent County.
