    I wanted to make a donation, but you guys make it REALLY hard! After listening to message after message after L-O-N-G message they give you a number to call. You call the number & they tell you that the system isn't working! Will make a donation elsewhere!

    The phone system is so complicated, I can't imagine how someone in need can possibly navigate through the maze. I am trying to make an "inkind" donation. After making the selection for donations and listening to a recording for several minutes, I am given an alternate contact person and number. People first, and a human person should be accessible... I am not a robot...but the system is robotic. What you do is important, so are the people you are supporting. There has got to be a better way.

Description: Transitional Housing
AFH offers Transitional Housing for those in need of more intensive supports during their transition back to economic stability and housing. A partnership with the faith community also provides interim housing to homeless adults working toward self-sufficiency. All efforts are made to rapidly rehouse those that are homeless. Transitional Housing is provided though for adults and families in need of more intensive support during their process of securing income and permanent housing. Transitional housing participants enter with little or no income and complex barriers to housing such as disability, long term homelessness and/or unemployment, domestic violence, or legal issues. Services offered include, but are not limited to, mental health counseling, employment services, support groups, life skills training, budgeting, housing placement, and intensive case management. Program goals are to secure sustainable income and secure permanent housing while addressing life issues that led to homelessness.

Permanent Supportive Housing
About 25% of our affordable housing units are considered service enriched permanent supportive housing and are reserved for households with one disabled family member. About 10% of the units are set aside for formerly homeless Veterans.
Homeless families are 2x more likely to have a disabled household member than the general population. AFH provides service enriched permanent supportive housing reserved for households with one disabled family member in about 25% of its affordable housing units.
AFH permanent supportive housing provides flexible and responsive services based on each individual’s need and ensure long term housing stability, including but not limited to, budgeting, employment services, children’s services, counseling-therapeutic, credit, and housing, crisis intervention, and eviction prevention. The program goal is to address issues that jeopardize housing stability and place adults and families at-risk for returning to homelessness.
