A collaboration between Hatch Development, Kiernan Development, YSS, DMAAC, and other community partners, 6thAvenue Flats will provide affordable housing to low-income individuals in Des Moines. Some of the 42 apartments will be reserved for YSS youth who have aged out of the foster care system and are at-risk or experiencing homelessness.

As part of the project, YSS will open on-site therapy offices for YSS clinicians to provide support services to the residents, as well as the surrounding community. The Prairie Meadows grant will support furnishing of the office space.
