Description: Emergency shelter for homeless

The Homeless Family Center helps families who have had to make difficult choices between housing, medical care, transportation,food and other expenses. These decisions may lead to a family facing a situation that may truly be beyond one's control and thereby leaving them without a home. Our Center has a clearly defined phase system in place to assist and determine the success of families to overcome this hurdle. The following shelter options are available based on each families needs:

Emergency Housing - Available to homeless families from Indian River, Martin, St. Lucie, and Ockeechobee Counties, Case Management interviews each client and develops an action plan based on that famiy's goals and objectives. This program is limited to a 90 day stay. Food, clothing, shelter, employment services, and case management are provided to each family. Clients who are able are required to work full time and children are enrolled in daycare / school.

Transitional Housing - Available to homeless families who require a longer period of time to get back on their feet. This program can be extended as long as two years, provided the client continues to follow house rules and work with case management. In this program, more intensive case management is provided with emphasis on job skills (employment and training), affordable housing, and realistic budgeting.

Employment Training - Any client who resides at the Center is able to work with the Employment Counselor who will provide training and job placement services. Residents are required to be employed 40 hours / week and save 75% of their income.

Children's Program - Our children's program staff oversees this program which promotes the betterment of self-esteem issues for the children through the use of art therapy and group classes. In addition to mentoring and tutoring services, weekly, age-specific activities are planned.
