The Homeless Families Foundation embraces a holistic, strength-based, housing first philosophy in serving homeless families and youth. We work with those referred to our homeless program. The first step to achieving stability is to meet the housing needs of families and youth by providing housing assistance. Once safely housed, case managers work with families and youth to create individualized stability plans to address their unique challenges to remain stable. Plans often include applying for benefits that increase household income, finding or improving employment, behavioral health and addiction services, credit repair, legal services, and education/training opportunities, etc. HFF Case Managers and Specialists meet families/youth “where they are” by providing mobile and home-based meetings and by recognizing that each stabilization journey is unique and requires different strategies and services that take advantage of each family/youth’s strengths, experience, and circumstances.
The average costs to house a family for three months is $3,300.
