Our primary focus is on preventing homelessness in families that were financially stable but experienced a sudden loss of income, unforeseen expenses or other events that resulted in them facing homelessness. From rent assistance, utility assistance, rehousing and personal finance classes, our case managers assess each family’s unique situation and then stabilizes their household.
Every week, our doors are open to provide emergency services to individuals and families facing financial hardships. Anyone can come to our warehouse and receive food, beverages, baby items, toiletries, assessments for emergency housing and job placement, and referrals to over 30 agencies that we partner with who provide complimentary services.
We accept request for help from entire low-income apartment communities and deliver a range of human services directly to their homes. If the apartment complex has 400 units, then we arrive with services like free groceries, beverages, medical screening, and public benefits planning for all 400 units. This is Human Services Home Delivery at its best.
Services for Children + Children in Community Service
We provide human services for over 3,000 children every year; making sure kids have school supplies for the fall and spring semesters, toys and food for the winter holidays, access to classes about modern technology, access to medical screenings, and family financial planning. Many of the packages that we distribute to children are "Made for Kids by Kids". Human services for children combined with volunteer opportunities for children is our hope for generational changes.
Every Thanksgiving, Christmas, Martin Luther King Kr. Holiday, and Easter we produce a festival of human services that each use almost 1,000 volunteers to serve 7,000 people in one day. A full hot meal, clothing, haircuts and styling, showers, live entertainment, medical screenings, employment assistance and legal aid are free to everyone who attends.
In line with our primary focus being homeless prevention, we produce programs that guide individuals into a better understanding of being self-sufficient and what that means for their unique circumstance. Our annual Labor of Love event and Women’s Life Skills program are just two of the programs that promote employability, financial responsibility and upward mobility.
