Aridell Mitchell Home

The Aridell Mitchell Home is a transitional home that meets the needs of teen parents through semi-independent living. Our goal is to assist the parents as they become productive adults.

The building, owned by Goodwill Missionary Baptist Church, had previously served as individual apartment homes but had lapsed into disrepair. In 1990 the church decided to dedicate the abandoned building to the community. A Board of Directors was organized with the help of Sharon Lee, who now serves as director of the Low Income Housing Institute (LEHI). A 501-C3 non-profit organization was formed to begin operating a transition home for teen mothers. The Aridell Mitchell Home was named after the late wife of the founder of Goodwill Missionary Baptist Church.

It is crucial for teen parents to have a stable environment in which to live and raise their children without fear and instability.

The Aridell Mitchell Home is a place where they can learn life skills as well as academic achievement. There are six two-bedroom apartments for teen families. Each resident is assisted in adopting a plan for independent living, education or work training and is linked to resources that will aid in achieving their goals. Our goal is to assist them as they become productive adults.

HUD/McKinney - CDBG City - O & M City - Project Based Section 8 - In kind donations
