Create Stability, Build Well-Being
Build the Foundation for Life
Housing is the foundation for life. Our Home helps families experiencing homelessness rebuild this foundation and find a path forward. We work together to build financial health, housing stability, and well-being.
Every family is unique, which is why we never use a one-size-fits-all approach. Family coordinators keep the family’s voice and choice central to the Family Development Plan and work collaboratively to create pathways to needed services and coordinate care across multiple providers. Family coordinators partner to build bridges to mental health care, social connections, educational opportunities, vocational training and opportunities, recreational activities, and transportation. Our compassionate team advocates on behalf of the people they serve, applying a strength-based coaching and healing-informed approach to supportive housing.
There is no expiration date on housing and Our Home residents may continue to reside in their own unit so long as they remain eligible for the program. Residents are responsible for their own unit care and upkeep.
