Our staff of highly trained social workers and housing coordinators partner with our families to define the path that will ultimately lead them to obtaining and maintaining housing.
Our social workers are trained to partner in all aspects of a family’s life to give direction on reaching their goals, especially with financial literacy, vocational counseling, children’s education and health and wellness. They meet the families where they are and help them get to where they want to go.
CFH works to solve family homelessness by doing three things:
- Housing Families: We address the immediate need of homelessness by sheltering working, homeless families and help them forge a path back to housing, along with providing short-term rental assistance in apartments all around the community.
- Building Partnerships: We partner with families in the areas of financial self-reliance, careers, education, support networks, and health and wellness, and volunteers form intentional relationships of encouragement and support.
- Empowering Change: We offer matched savings accounts, microloans for qualified emergencies and below-market rate auto loans, and a holiday store where families budget for and purchase gifts for a portion of the price, in order to preserve dignity and self-esteem, increase personal accountability, and decrease dependency.
