Haven:
Newest project: Because babies born to teenage mothers are at risk for long term problems in life, Lighthouse Path now helps to intervene with the first program of its kind in Oakland County. The organization recently initiated a teen program capable of housing 10 parenting and and/or pregnant girls and up to 30 children from these families in a rehabbed apartment building on Whittlemore Street in Pontiac. Teens are referred by area agencies that aid in ongoing services. A nurturing professional staff includes a full-time family advocate, daily living coordinator and a therapist on contract. The educational curriculum includes health classes about pregnancy and childbirth.

Continuing service: Lighthouse PATH provides a safe, structured environment for up to 33 homeless women and their children who are referred to the agency by temporary emergency shelters. Participants can live at Lighthouse facilities for up to two years if they agree to participate in job training, life skills, group counseling and other programs. Davenport notes that up to 90 percent of the families served went on to gain permanent housing, returned to school to further their education and secured employment.

Community care: PATH has begun offering classes in its parenting programs to the community parents who have enrolled their children in various programs including PATH Montessori. Parents learn how to nurture self-reliance and flexibility within children. They are encouraged to make family life their top priority.
