Homelessness can be a difficult time for adults. But the situation becomes even more heartbreaking when children are involved. The Mission’s Family Home is a 202-bed long term transitional housing facility accommodating single women, single mothers with children, single fathers with children, and husbands/wives with children.
The Family Home’s clean, home-like atmosphere provides residents private and semi-private rooms and bathrooms at no charge. Homeless women, children and families live in the transitional Home until they are able to regain their footing and live a self-sufficient lifestyle once again.
Each guest of the Family Home is assigned a case manager, who helps map out a customized program for permanent recovery and walks with the family until they can stand on their own. While the Mission provides basic living services including meals, laundry facilities and daycare, the heart of our program is Christian mentoring.
If you are homeless or nearly homeless, and are considering the Family Home, your next step is to complete an admission application. Prospective guests are expected to:
- Be mentally and physically able to work at least 30 hours or more per week.
- Work with a biblical case manager who will work as your life coach during your stay.
- Provide Social Security number(s), driver’s license(s), and/or state IDs.
