Family Cottage Turns Two!
In April of 2020, SAY opened the doors to our Family Cottage: a housing opportunity for young adults ages 18-21 who are experiencing homelessness or unstably housed while also pregnant and/or parenting a young child.
The Family Cottage offers supportive services tailored for youth who are interested in strengthening their parenting skills and providing a safe space for their child, or children, to live. In the two years that our Family Cottage has been open, SAY has provided stable housing and parenting support to ten parents and eight children and babies! We are so excited to share that three of those babies were born while their parents were living in the Family Cottage!
“Some of the greatest things a parent can give their children are love, their time and stable housing,” says Mildred Williams, Director of Housing at SAY. “At the Family Cottage, we assist parents with making those things possible.”
