Calling it a “beacon” for LGBTQ+ at-risk youth who may not have a safe place to live or get health care, Detroit officials on Friday officially cut the ribbon on the city’s newest mixed-use affordable housing development which will provide a “safe haven” for those who need it.The $16 million Ruth Ellis Clairmount Center, considered one of the first of its kind in the Midwest, features 43 units of long-term, supportive housing along with a health and wellness center at which Henry Ford physicians will provide gender-affirming hormone therapy, sexual health services, HIV care, primary care and mental health treatments. It also includes a cafe, technology center, a fitness center and several community spaces as well.
