Our clients are both individuals and families spanning all ages, from infancy (and even pre-natal care) to elderly. A typical homeless family consists of a single mother in her 20s with 1-3 children; the majority of our own family program participants are young single mothers. People with disabilities are disproportionately homeless; we also provide specific services for individuals with disabilities both directly and via partnerships with housing development corporations.
