Where Your Money Goes

Detroit Phoenix Center is a nonprofit organization that responds to the needs of underserved and street-connected youth in Detroit. DPC supports young people, ages 13-24, through direct services, including a daily drop-in center for young adults (showers, washer/dryer, food pantry, computer lab, day beds, hygiene products, life skills classes etc.), afterschool enrichment program for teens, youth action board, emergency crisis housing, and a scholarship fund. DPC also works diligently for systemic change and contributes to the growing movement to end youth homelessness.
