In Northeast Ohio, the availability of housing for teens and young adults exiting the foster system is difficult to find. Also, many of the locations that are available do not offer the life-skills training and support that these youth require to be successful.
Joy’s house of Love is in the process of securing the location for the housing initiative and complete the setup of the facility. The Program Director will work with the Cuyahoga County Bridge’s Program to identify and select candidates to be housed within the facility.
Through the Housing Program of Joy’s House of Love, our aim is for the youth to learn to live independently while continuing to learn useful skills, such as:
How to Budget
How to Build Good Credit
How to Secure and Maintain a Job/Career
How to Enroll in Secondary Education
Mental Health Course: Mood Disorders Among Young Adults, Prevention and Treatment
Physical Health Course: Prevention of Risks Related to Sexual Behavior
Healthcare: Medicaid Enrollment and Knowing Your Rights
Health, Nutrition & Transportation
We support our youth by connecting them to resources, preparing them healthy meals, and providing them with transportation to/from appointments .
