Simpson provides comprehensive supportive housing to parenting youth, ages 18-24, through the Young Parent Program. Participants have young children, ages 0-5, and live in both site-based and scattered-site housing in Minneapolis. Support services focus on goal setting around education and employment, as well as early childhood home visiting with an emphasis on child development and positive parenting skills.
In May 2017, Simpson began providing support services to youth transitioning out of homelessness, ages 16-24, at 66 West. 66 West is a housing development in Edina with 39 units, owned by Beacon Interfaith Housing Collaborative. Services focus on setting and working toward personal goals in education, employment, and wellness. Read more about the services we provide at 66 West here.
