Staying on Track
Staying on Track – Provides Stabilization
Once the parent has maintained full time employment, adhered to the guidelines of the Shelter Program, saved adequate funds, and located housing they are invited to participate in this stabilization program. The goal is to assure the families are utilizing the tools provided to them in the Shelter Program. They receive continued case management support to include in-home visits to review the family’s budget and overall financial management, discuss the children’s progress in school, inspect the home for cleanliness and the availability of nutritious food and to discuss other issues the family may be experiencing. Continued Life Skills programs are provided, as are referrals to other community programs and resources.
Financial support toward the security deposit, utility connection fees, moving expenses and rent is provided to families who participate in the Staying on Track Program, as outlined in their commitment document. Designed to move our homeless families into rental housing as quickly as possible it also allows Family Promise to serve more families with children who are homeless and in need of Shelter. In addition, we provide basic household items and furniture for their home as well as support with back to school and holiday needs. The support typically lasts 12 months.
