Detroit Phoenix Center
is a nonprofit organization that responds to the needs of underserved and street-connected youth in Detroit. We support young people, ages 13-24, through direct services including a daily drop-in center for young adults , afterschool enrichment programs for teens, youth action board, emergency crisis housing, and a scholarship fund. Detroit Phoenix Center also works diligently for systemic change and contributes to the growing movement to end youth homelessness.
