Open Heart Communities
Posted By: Courtney Cabell (June 1, 2021)
Open Heart Communities is dedicated to serving Michigan foster youth. They have a residential facility in which they house youth who've aged out of the foster care system. They teach them financial literacy and independent living skills. They also help them find employment and apply to college. Just in May, OHC held a Foster Care Panel in which they had individuals who've been in the system speak to their personal experiences to raise awareness about foster care and the need for more programs like theirs. They also partner with MDHHS and other nonprofits to provide much needed services items to foster children.
