About our Partner: Rezek House is a two-year transitional living program for youth ages 16 – 21 experiencing homelessness.
Rezek offers 10 efficiency units for single youth as well as two one-bedroom units for parenting youth. The youth pay “rent” by placing 30 percent of their income into a savings account. They are required to allow their savings to accumulate until they move out. Paying monthly rent empowers young people in gaining budgeting skills and developing rental history.
Rezek also includes a drop-in center/resource hub. Designated for young people in their programs, the drop-in center provides access to a phone, computer, community kitchen stocked with healthy food, and various classes and events led by staff and community volunteers.
