Support Is Critical To Our Success
There are so many ways you can help! We’re always looking for Mentors for our mentoring program, enthusiastic volunteers to serve on committees, and community and business members who have talents or services to offer our youth. Click here for more information.
Sometimes items you may already have or have access to can really help our program. Could you sponsor a meeting for mentors and youth? Do you have a special talent you could teach our kids (e.g. job interviewing, car repair)? There are many, simple ways for you to help foster youth though Our House programs:
Space for meetings
Food for meetings
Jobs for youth
A house for semi-independent living
Paper, envelopes and printer toner
Birthday cakes for youth
“Jeans Day” or other work-place fundraisers
Let us know if you can help or have other ideas.

In keeping with our mission to teach youth skills that allow them to be successful, self-sufficient
and live independently with confidence, our Community Network Program marshals businesses,
individuals and organizations who can help the youth on their journey to adulthood. These
important community partners provide skills and vocational training, educational supports, jobs,
household furnishings, transportation, counseling and other practical resources to Our House youth.
One of our earliest community partners was Blue Cab Company, providing critical transportation to youth for Our House events. Likewise, while we’re not affiliated with any religion, the Vineyard Church of Ann Arbor provided us with space for training and meetings before we had our own space. Zingerman’s Community of Businesses in Ann Arbor also helped with job skills training, including practice interviews, so that Our House youth could learn how to prepare for a job opportunity with proper greetings, how to dress/personal hygiene, body language, and what questions to ask. Upon completion, teens were encourage to apply for job opportunities throughout the Zingerman’s family of businesses.
More recently, we partnered with another amazing non profit, HouseN2Home to help furnish our house for the MOSAIC program participants. Take a listen to WEMU's interview with Natasha to learn more about how HouseN2Home helped us create a special living space for our participants.
