Program Description

  Homeless Family Services

Homeless Family Services provides emergency shelter and transitional housing to families with children experiencing homelessness. Services include intake and assessment, case management, and housing location to link families experiencing homelessness to housing, behavioral health, financial, and legal programs. All services are housing focused with a goal of connecting families with permanent housing as quickly as possible and removing systemic barriers to accessing housing and services. All homeless service providers participate in the Coordinated Entry System which uses a coordinated assessment to prioritize families for housing.
