OHC is a nonprofit dedicated to serving foster children in Michigan. In January, they started a Young Adult Foster Care program in which they house youth ages 18-21 who have aged-out of foster care and are seeking residence. These youth receive resources from OHC and participate in workshops to help bridge the gap between foster care and independence such as: resume writing, interviewing skills, financial literacy, college application assistance, job application assistance, communication skills, and home economics. OHC also provides mental health services to youth in foster care and parents who are seeking reunification with their children.
