In 2018, we set out to begin campaigning for a new girls home. This new home will be very similar to Holder Home, the boys home on campus, with a few minor layout changes. The new home will serve 8 girls, giving them their own individual rooms, a safe room with back up generators, living area, dining/kitchen area, and two full bathrooms. The current girls home, Pathways, will be remodeled to become a semi-independent living program for young ladies that are about to transition back into the community on their own, due to not having any family or not having a host home to leave our facility to go to.
When the pandemic stopped the world in 2020, it required us to refocus our efforts on the youth who were on our campus and set us back in our building plans. However, with the help of the community and our donors, we continued to work diligently to close the gap for the needed funds!
Now that the ground has been broken, we would like to thank our amazing community supporters and donors for allowing us to begin building this new addition to UMYH!
