Housing authority to pilot supportive housing geared toward young adults (Lucas Metropolitan Housing Authority)

From the Toledo Blade:

A modest two-story house with sand-colored siding and dark green shutters will soon be home to three young men who are either aging out of foster care or exiting the Lucas County Juvenile Justice Center.

It’s the first of what Lucas Metropolitan Housing Authority President and CEO Demetria Simpson and juvenile court Judge Denise Navarre Cubbon hope will be many rental homes geared toward helping young adults find their footing as they navigate living independently for the first time.

Representatives from LMHA, its nonprofit affiliate Lucas Housing Services Corporation, Lucas County Juvenile Court, Toledo City Council, and U.S. Rep. Marcy Kaptur’s office celebrated on Monday with a ribbon cutting at the Nebraska Avenue home, marking the start of a pilot program called Bridge to Independence and Success.

The goal is to give Lucas County young adults who are 18-21 and aging out of foster care or leaving the criminal justice system the stability and guidance they need to forge successful adult lives.
