Home Start is an extremely comprehensive program with many rules and expectations for their residents. Adults are expected to put their family first and to become contributing members of the community.

Lea3 below put it beautifully, “clients who don’t like to follow rules love to complain.” Individuals who do not follow the rules that have been laid out are not successful in the program. If an individual complies with the program that they agreed to upon arrival to the facility, they will graduate successfully, making a better life for themselves and their children.

It is unfortunate that our society makes it easy for capable people to live on handouts and do no real work for themselves and their family. Home Start is constantly bashed by ex-clients that do not want to put in the work. This is a unique facility that actually hold’s their residents to high standards and keeps them accountable for their decisions and actions.

I was part of a organization that donated a signifigant amount of time and materials to homestart. Our organization was countlessly demeaned by the director Ann and other staff members. Our organization has asked several times where are donations and have recieved no answer. This program claims to have a 90% graduation rate however no statistics can be provided. After talking with several current and past clients I have deamed this program extremely unproffesional and inconsistent. Homestart has room for up to 30 families, however they never have more than 6 and often has less. If you are an organization looking to donate goods and services I would strongly reccomend looking elsewhere. It is my opinion that this program does not help those it intends to.

Home Start offers people the chance to become self-sufficient by assiting them in the path to employment and off government aid. They help clients with resources when they lack the means to obtain them such as a place to stay, food, clothing, and baby items. Sadly, many are not ready to end their drug, partying, violent and criminal pasts for a more family-oriented one. This is a great program for peope who are truly ready to change their ways.
