Our Home & Hope Program provides housing for homeless families in one of our 23 lovingly decorated, furnished apartments for up to one year. The apartments are rent-free for clients who enter the program unemployed. Upon obtaining employment, we require a monthly occupancy charge of 30% of the net family income. To encourage savings, Interfaith Family Services returns 100% of that charge to families who save $500 or more and successfully complete all other program requirements.
In addition to housing, clients are required to meet weekly with their personal success coach and financial coach to provide the accountability and support needed to reach their savings and debt-reduction goals. Additionally, unemployed and underemployed clients must participate in our ADVANCE Career Coaching Program until viable employment is obtained. We also provide on-site childcare and afterschool/summer programs for children as well as fitness/wellness classes and counseling services for the entire family.
