Prevention

Preventing families from becoming homeless in the first place with Shelter Diversion, Rental Assistance, and Prevention programs.

With more than 40% of Americans a $400 expense away from financial distress, the threat of crisis looms closely for too many families. Preventing families from spiraling into homelessness is an essential part of the Family Promise mission.

PROACTIVE SOLUTIONS

This assistance is for families with minor dependent children.

 

We offer a variety of strategies to ensure the people we serve do not fall into the cycle of housing instability that can devastate families and alter the course of children’s lives. These include administering  formal diversion programs with funding, providing rental assistance, past due utility bills, landlord mediation, and community-based approaches that keep families housed.
