For thirty years, Family Supportive Housing has been helping homeless single- and two-parent families with children remain intact, while addressing their needs for food, shelter, employment and education. We offer families a respite, an opportunity to make life-altering changes, and a system to aid in finding permanent housing.

Our Mission

To provide temporary housing and targeted support to guide families from crisis to independent lives in our community.

Our Vision

All families experiencing homelessness have the support, resources and skills that they need to become self-sufficient.

Address critical barriers to long-term self-sufficiency: job readiness, financial literacy, access to permanent housing, health and nutrition, daycare and education, effective parenting
