Program areas at Hope and A Home

Housing program:phase i transitional housing: Hope and A Home owns 19 transitional housing units. We work with the community partnership for the prevention of homelessness to fill our unit vacancies with families from local shelters. In fy 2022, we provided 21 homeless families with highly subsidized transitional housing units, which they may inhabit for up to three years. During their residency, families secure employment, enroll their children in day care and good-performing schools, gain housing and financial literacy skills -- while addressing their personal barriers to success and independence. By graduation, parents are prepared to secure affordable housing -- which sometimes means becoming owners of cooperatives or other housing. Phase 2 independent housing: after three years in transitional, housing families in phase 2 live independently, yet continue to receive personalized case management on A monthly basis to maintain their homes and achieve their goals -- which can range from continuing education and career prospects to purchasing A Home. Phase 2 families that move into market-rate housing receive up to $300/month for rental assistance in their first year out and $200/month in their second year.
Food program:we provided groceries twice monthly to 386 people in 72 families during fy2022. Deliveries were comprised of fresh healthy food including fruit, vegetables, meat, fish, bread, cereal, milk. The food was purchased directly from wholesale food suppliers who delivered the food directly to Hope and A Home - after which we bagged it for pick-up or delivery to our families.
