MIRCI broke ground in August 2017 on 10-bedroom Transitional Home for Youth identifying as male that opened in October 2018 and will house individuals identifying as male age 17-24. Sine the Youth Home opened 100% of the occupants have obtained part-time or full-time employment, 50% made progress on education goals, 86% connected or reconnected with supportive family members and 100% improved well-being. MIRCI consumers were provided the opportunity to engage in an art class, that enabled the consumers to express themselves and produce art that was shown in the community.  As a result of the collaborative efforts amongst the staff and clients, MIRCI developed an expressive arts therapy group.    MIRCI developed a garden for its consumers to reinforce daily living skills, reduce stress levels, and reinforce healthy nutritional habits.
