We have found the contractors and are ready to build and start our contractor program with youth from the surrounding neighborhoods. They will learn teamwork skills as well as construction/contractor skills alongside mentorship as well. Covid has unfortunately presented challenges for us as we push through this project but no challenge will keep us from achieving the overall goal of creating a safe space for Detroit youth to heal. As construction begins, we will post pics so you all can see our youth in action. We hope to have the full project done by June 2022. Thank you for helping make this possible.
We are so thankful that you all decided to donate to our Tiny Homes for Teens Initiative. We really want to make sure we can provide a safe space for temporary living for teens experiencing extreme trauma. Thanks to you all, we will be beginning construction of the Healing Hub this summer and the build of the Tiny Homes will come thereafter. The young people will learn construction and architect skills throughout the process so they will be the ones building the homes. We hope to build 4 homes by 4 different groups of youth and each group will have a budget that they have to adhere to (teaching them financial skills) and they will come up with the theme of each house as a group.
