COUPLES AND FAMILIES: GET HELP

Ways That We Assist Couples and Families

We assist couples and families experiencing homelessness in the following three ways: Short-Term Residential Services Program (Sept. 15 – May 15), Day Resource Center (temporarily suspended), and Diversion Services.

We assist families experiencing financial hardship through our FCUS (Family and Couples Stability Services) program.
