Target Population

There are approximately 5,748 youth between the ages of 18-24 living in Malden and the number is growing due to the recent influx of resident. The need for Youth Center, for young people to go after school or on weekends or during difficult time at home is a reality. The city recently invested in few youth centers that offer during week days afterschool a safe place where teens can spend time with friends, receive homework assistance and participate in community service opportunities. The attendance in those centers lead us to believe that a transitional house will be beneficial.
