COMMUNITY & BELONGINGNESS

“When I do things

with Our House,

I feel like people want me there…

when I talk about myself

my problems,

it feels like they really listen.

Things get done instead of just always talking, or doing nothing to help.”

D.H., our house youth

Developing Permanent Connections
Our Team Mentoring, Annual Camp, community service opportunities and individual mentors help foster such ties. The bond that forms between the youth and the supportive peers and adults around him/her is at the heart of our mentoring process. The presence of a strong emotional connection is associated with stronger feelings of self-worth, as well as reduced levels of emotional and behavioral problems.
Our Community Service Program provides Our House youth with community service opportunities to make a positive impact through local volunteerism, all while developing new skills and friendships. Recently, we distributed bottled water to Flint residents providing a rewarding and eye-opening experience for our youth. Similar activities are being planned throughout the year.
