Homeless teens between the ages of 14 and 19 have limited resource options in our social welfare system. Driven from a need to support the youth of our school district who lack stable housing, The Ryan Home Project was formed in 2017.
We work closely with MSAD 60 to provide services such as medical and dental care, mental health support, as well as stable housing.
Since 2019 the Ryan Home project has gone from a crazy idea to a reality that is making a real difference in the lives of the young people it serves. In addition to establishing a network of supportive host families throughout the community. The project has raised close to $200,000, purchased a home, and hired a host family.
In January of 2020, RHP opened the doors to young people in need. Since then there have been between 4-6 youth between the ages of 16-19 in residence. The house is set up to house 6 youth and since opening we have been functioning at or near capacity. The need is real!
