Families First Campaign
WE DID IT! We now proudly own a new property in Lents! Our entire village came together and generated $3.3million in just five months to purchase this campus that will shelter 26 families at a time in private rooms, expand our homeless prevention and life skills programs, and has room to develop affordable housing units in the future.
We are so grateful for the hundreds of people, foundations, and businesses who stepped up and said, "Enough is enough - we will not accept family homelessness as normal!" Your contributions and support will end homelessness for thousands of kids and their parents. Thank you!
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.
