Class of Housing/Services: Transitional Housing For Families

General Information:
Family Renew Community is not an emergency shelter. Families accepted into the housing program may stay for six months or more while parents work toward a lasting solution to their homelessness. The application process begins with the Housing Inquiry, which may be submitted online or completed in person at our residential campuses in Holly Hill, Daytona Beach and DeLand. Family Renew Community provides housing for homeless families with children in Volusia County. More importantly, though, we help homeless parents on a path toward supporting their families in places of their own. We have 32 apartments at residential campuses in Holly Hill, Daytona Beach and DeLand, where families may live for six months or more with no rent or utility payments. Before coming to Family Renew, many of these children and their parents sleep in cars, on floors in overcrowded homes of exasperated loved ones, in seedy motels, or worse. Family Renew offers about 60 families a year safe haven from these desperate situations. But our housing program is not all about shelter. In the security and modest comfort of private, furnished apartments, families heal. Children go to school rested, bathed, in clean clothes and ready to study and play. With intensive yet compassionate guidance from case managers, mothers and fathers improve their employment, money management and parenting. They pay down debt, repair credit and build savings. When they move back out on their own, they are better equipped to handle whatever challenges life may send their way. We have evidence that nearly all of the families we serve remain stably housed in the months and years afterward. This restoration of hope for homeless families takes hard work on the part of parents; and the program is not for everyone. Families are screened for eligibility through an application process. Priority for placement in apartments is given to eligible families who are significantly vulnerable to harm in their unstable living conditions. We choose to work with with families who are unlikely to attain and sustain permanent, affordable housing in any other way.
