About the Program

With Families in Residence with Support in Transition – FIRST, homeless families engage in the family development process to achieve self-sufficiency and permanent housing. Transitional housing is provided in scattered site rental units.

We Serve

Homeless families, or parents, with children who are usually under the age of 35. Some families have children removed from home, but have a court-ordered reunification plan in place.
