Mission: To provide housing for homeless families with children, while helping them prepare for the transition to permanent housing.
Programs: 61 children with 49 parents/grandparents comprising 30 homeless families were provided with food, shelter, and support services to enable them to move to permanent housing. 35 of those children were 5 years of age or younger. 8 families graduated into permanent housing and all have maintained it. 13 families occupied one of 5 transitional homes during the year. 3 families remained in the network at year end. An amazing 9,839 bed nights of lodging and 12,006 meals were provided through our host and support faith communities.
I lived with this program for seven months with my daughter. They sheltered us while I got my life back together. They provided a nice atmosphere for me and my daughter while I went to school and work. The director supported me through housing. When I got my house they helped me furnish it because I had nothing. This program gave me and my daughter a home and great friends.
