Families achieve success through a two-year structured program focused on life skills training and intensive case management services.
Programs: Families forward - to provide rental assistance to prevent evictions, mortgage assistance to prevent foreclosure and other support to help low-income families reestablishing households.
emergency transitional housing - to provide transitional housing for homeless families through a one or two year structured program of education and support.
I love this group. My family and I have volunteered with Advocates for over 5 years, and I have seen this program change a lot of lives. I think that the most important things that families get from Advocates is time and breathing room. Advocates gives families the immediate housing support they need, while also providing the support to rebuild lives and transition to self-sufficiency.
