Providing funds for individuals who have shown the potential to become successful members of society, but lack the resources to overcome poverty or abuse.
To make a profound difference in the lives of highly motivated and qualified people who possess the desire and drive to succeed but lack the opportunity and resources. The organization seeks to accomplish this goal by awarding grants to help working women and children affected by domestic violence to create strong, and economically independent families in affordable housing. Grants are also awarded for other services such as, child care, job training and career, financial and psychological counseling. In addition, there is an educational mentoring program which awards grants and provides mentors to students from the foster care system who are attending post-secondary education.
the organization also awards financial aid to matriculated high school students in foster care to be successful in college.

Reviews for Of Home Family And Future Inc
I lost a friend to domestic violence many years ago. One reason she didn't leave was because she couldn't figure out how to bridge that period after leaving the shelter and before achieving financial independence. I began volunteering with Of Home, Family and Future (OHFF) because they were the only organization I saw bridging that gap successfully through their Domestic Violence Initiative. Having worked with them since 2005, I have gained equal admiration for their Educational Mentoring Program, which works with students coming from the foster care system who qualify for postsecondary education opportunities. I particularly appreciate that OHFF achieves all of this with unpaid staff, that 100% of contributions and grants go directly to program participants, that the programs have measurable outcomes, and that OHFF partners with other highly reputable agencies in order to deliver their services more efficiently. No other local programs, addressing their areas of concern, offer their participants grants for an array of services as broad as theirs or for a program period as long as theirs.
I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...
I've had a chance to come to know so many of the participants and to see their amazing progress firsthand. OHFF's program are helping these determined individuals transform their lives by expanding their opportunities.
