Through Family Housing, we help families quickly exit homelessness and return to permanent housing, increase their income and stay housed for good. We combine stable housing with job training and placement, individualized financial coaching, childcare, health and mental health care referrals, and the support of trauma-informed trained social workers to support these families as they become emotionally and financially self-sufficient.
Emergency Shelter & Transitional Living for Women
While our Emergency Shelter is not a domestic violence shelter, it is quickly becoming the first line of defense for homeless, female victims of crime and abuse. We aim to provide a healing environment for these women as they become emotionally and financially self-sufficient.
Shelter services extend beyond room and board for a few months. Participants also receive counseling, individualized financial coaching, health and mental health care referrals, life skills training, assistance with education and job training and placement, and ongoing support and guidance from trauma-informed trained social workers as they transform from victims to self-sufficient strong survivors and contributing members of our community.
Economic mobility services work to disrupt the cycle of poverty by educating, coaching and engaging women in asset-building services through:
•Financial Education & Individual Coaching
•Small Business Development
The program helps participants increase income, credit scores, and savings, while decreasing debt.
