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 (year-round), and Rapid-Rehousing Support Services.
We assist families experiencing financial hardship through our FCUS (Family and Couples Stability Services) program.
