Scattered Sites Housing Services
The Housing Services department works with families that are either homeless or in transitional housing. The primary goal for each family is permanent, safe housing and self-sufficiency. The overall goal is for our families to create a better life for themselves and particularly for their children.
One of the innovative responses we have created is to have a playroom for the children, while the parents are attending our program. Parents would not be able to attend without it. The playroom volunteers are people that have in fact completed our program and have returned to give back what they were given, hope. Through the years many of our families have succeeded and come back to thank us for helping them to make their dreams come true. Our answer is always the same…you did the work!
