Domus builds loving relationships with young people facing adversity, empowering them to pursue their path to self-sufficiency.
Domus empowers young people to rise above adversity through two major areas of focus: workforce development and school engagement. Through both of these models we offer academic support, social-emotional skill building, and personal and practical connections that help guide them through critical junctures to become resilient, positive contributors to their communities.
Domas serves more than 1,700 of our community's most struggling youth. Young people come to us with many challenges; most are living in abject poverty, have had involvement in the criminal justice system, and have experienced homelessness, neglect, abuse, academic failure, and chronic untreated healthcare issues.
Its overarching goal is to create the conditions necessary for them to get on a path toward health and opportunity so they can succeed in school and ultimately lead satisfying and productive lives.
