WOMEN with CHILDREN
The Avis Arbor women with children’s program is currently under construction and will re-open in the summer of 2018. This intensive rehabilitation of the building will allow us to grow the program from 24 beds to 32 beds. We know that women with children are among the fastest growing homeless population. The renovation is transforming the rooms into suites that will allow for a living space, bedroom and private bathroom for each family unit. An on site childcare space will allow for residents to have safe and stable childcare while each mother can focus on their goals; recovery, education, or job training. A full program specific to this population is under construction.
Would you like to help us complete these suites for homeless mothers and children? We still need to furnish the rooms to make them comfortable living areas. City Mission and Scarmazzi Homes recently launched Avis Arbor Fixer Upper, a special fundraising effort to furnish these 12 special suites.
