Class of Housing/Services: Family Shelter.
FreshStart is a short-term shelter for six homeless families. For more information contact HomeFront or visit the HomeFront website.
Unemployment or underemployment plague many families. They may be faced with impossible choices, such as paying the rent or buying groceries. The working poor cannot make ends meet, but they don’t qualify for government assistance. With no safety net, many become homeless. HomeFront’s FreshStart is not just a program; it’s a commitment to make sure that every family has a home. It provides short-term housing and services to homeless or in-need working-poor families and is designed to help families find a permanent home. We look at all options, including appealing to relatives to fend off homelessness. FreshStart gives families needed stability while they regain financial self-sufficiency and address the issues that caused their homelessness. We customize our support services to their individual needs, strengths and abilities. Sometimes a client just needs to be pointed in the right direction and armed with the necessary skills and guidance. In most cases, however, a case manager will take a more hands-on approach while working to resolve issues and identify problems that might cause a future crisis. By meeting their needs at this critical juncture, we prevent them from spiraling into persistent homelessness. We also work with each family to find permanent housing. Unfortunately, obtaining permanent housing can be very difficult for a client with very limited financial resources. In cases like this, we intensify our efforts, advocating with government and private housing agencies, landlords and church groups for help. In the years since FreshStart began, hundreds of families have been restored to independence. The proof is in these families, our former clients.
