There are many reasons why parents and children might need shelter and a program designed to promote independent living: destructive relationships, uncertain financial stability, potential homelessness, few or no job skills, and little or no family support. Families requesting assistance typically are physically and emotionally exhausted, as well as economically depleted. Our Family Care team will support clients as they secure the resources they need to move toward successful independent living. Our team works to ensure emotional stability, parenting skills and life-skills through a holistic approach, while encouraging services that provide independence and stability.
