Families First Campaign
PHFS is embarking on the Families First Capital Campaign to quadruple shelter capacity, own and operate affordable housing units, and expand our homeless prevention and rapid re-housing programs. But we can't do it without you! Please consider making a transformational investment in the future of these families – so together we can end homelessness for thousands of kids and their parents.
Housing first Program
Families experiencing homelessness move back into housing as quickly as possible. We provide rent assistance and case management for 6-12 months to help families keep their housing long-term.
Families with a 72-hour eviction notice get to keep their housing. We pay security deposits, moving costs, or back rent for families so they never have to experience homelessness with their children.
Families have a safe, warm place to sleep every night of the year. We have all the comforts of home – private sleeping spaces, food, showers, laundry, computers, and clothing. We rely on a team of over 800 volunteers to help provide supportive, compassionate services.
Life lab Skills training
Families take evidence-based classes to learn new skills they can use to get and keep housing. Our classes include Incredible Years Parenting, Rent Well Tenant Education, and the ARISE Life Skills Curriculum.
