The Jackson Home

Hello, we would like to introduce ourselves and let you all know how excited we are to serve our community. We are Allen and Mia Jackson. We have been married for over 17 years.

 Mia is a U.S Army veteran who Graduated from Whitmer High School and earned a Bachelor of Science degree from the University of Toledo in Health Information Management. Mia is very organized and patient when teaching young people living skills that will benefit them not only while in the home, but also as they prepare to be productive adults living and having families of their own.

 Allen is a Scott High School graduate who has worked with troubled young men in the community for nearly 20 years. He started mentoring with the Covenant Youth Development program where he eventually monitored one of the first online class rooms in Toledo. For the past 6 years Allen has been managing three supported living sites for the N.O.W. House program of OT-FA, which provides home personal care services for young adult men with Developmental Disabilities.

 The Jackson home is a supervised therapeutic family setting that will provide the boys with a stable structured environment that will enable them to gain as well as maintain the autonomous living skills, education, and social behavioral skills that would benefit them in their future endeavors. We will be a safe haven that will provide individualized on-site counseling delivered by a certified counselor, for those in need, there will be a sex offender treatment group available.  Our Home follows the Teaching Parent model, emphasizing the importance of self-development via education, responsibility,  self-worth, socially appropriate morals and values,  an excellent work ethic, self-respect and respect of others, and problem solving skills.
