The VISION of Family HomeStead is to assist homeless families to overcome the specific crisis of homelessness and re-stabilize at a level of functioning optimal for them


Our Mission

75% of the families who complete our program will:

1. Move to next step housing

2. Have income adequate to support next-step housing

3. Effectively address the underlying causes that led to their homelessness as identified in their case plan

core values

  • Traditional shelters are not appropriate places for most families with children
  • Social Services and housing are of equal value and importance to families who are homeless
  • The most important determinant of outcome is what the family brings to the situation
  • Our focus is on assisting families to achieve realistic outcomes, not on individual or societal transformation
  • Active participation by the client is necessary and required
