Putting Children First
At Families Together, we focus on ending family homelessness. We work with urgency to prevent family separation and give all children a place to call home. Last year, we improved the lives of 450 children in over 200 families. By following the Housing First model, we end homelessness quickly - in most cases within 60 days of enrollment in our program.
Families sleeping in cars or at high risk of being separated are given priority for a three-bedroom apartment in our Short-Term Family Housing. Here they stay rent free while we locate permanent housing. The children are welcomed into a nurturing environment with an after-school program, playground, basketball court and garden - designed to bring them out of isolation and support their health and well-being.
Let's put a roof over every child's head
You, through your partnership with Families Together, are the best hope for families that otherwise would fall through the gaps in the safety net. You can ensure that the doors of our Short-Term Family Housing not only remain open, but offer a vibrant entryway to ending the immediate crisis that strikes a growing number of families with children. You can expand a caring community that enables FT to give more families the hope that begins with a home. You can advocate for families and join us as we work to increase the pool of affordable housing in our community. Ultimately, our goal is to break the cycle of homelessness, build family cohesion, and promote the health and well-being of children. You can make this vital goal a reality.
