Project Home Indy supports teen mothers who need a safe and healthy environment to overcome the barriers preventing self-sufficiency and independence. In addition to extended-stay residential services in a safe, structured and supportive environment, PHI offers each teen a comprehensive assessment designed to determine the appropriate type and intensity of services needed for her. 

Empowering Young Women

We offer a range of programs and activities both internally and through community partnerships in order to promote self-sufficiency for our residents and their children. The following are some (but not all of!) the skills and benefits our residents receive to develop independence:

Life Skills: Parenting, mentoring, transitional services, home care, economic literacy     

Healthcare: Pre- and post-natal care; pediatric, adolescent, and maternal health care; alcohol and substance abuse treatment, mental health services, family counseling     

Education: GED, high school, job training, technology training, college preparation  

Criteria for Residency 

We accept young women who:

  • Are 15 to 19 years old at the time of intake
  • Are at risk of homelessness
  • Are pregnant or parenting one child under the age of 3
  • Are interested in long-term housing for up to two years while they build skills to become self-sufficient
  • Are willing to participate in education, whether that is their high school education, a GED class, vocational education, or secondary education
  • Are willing to follow program rules and requirements
