Class of Housing/Services: Assists with families finding homes for homeless families, supportive housing

General Information:
Assists with families finding homes for homeless families, supportive housing. At Homes for the Homeless, our mission is to provide homeless families with the opportunities and support necessary to move out of shelter and live independently. With the knowledge that Family Homelessness is first and foremost a poverty issue that disproportionately affects children, Homes for the Homeless has adopted a family-based, child-centered, education-focused approach to all its programs and services. Homes for the Homeless developed the American Family Inn model as an efficient and effective approach for how to comprehensively serve homeless families within the context of the existing shelter infrastructure. The American Family Inns combine the basic services of traditional shelters with a full range of programs designed to meet the specific needs of homeless children and their parents. Rather than assume parents will have the opportunity to obtain services once their have procured permanent housing, HFH ensures that a family's future can begin as soon as they walk through the doors of an American Family Inn. Each Inn provides a community of opportunity where families find the classrooms, libraries, computer labs, health clinics, playgrounds, and counseling centers they will use during their time as residents. All of these on-site resources make the American Family Inn a place where parents and children can learn and grow as they embark on the path to independence. Mothers drop toddlers off at daycare on their way to work, after-school teachers greet kids as they come home from school, and families learn together in literacy workshops. While students take educational field trips to museums and city landmarks, adults meet with employment and housing specialists who help them prepare for job interviews and find apartments of their own. On-site New York City Department of Education liaisons work to ensure that children are enrolled and attend school. Parents and children are embraced by a community that encourages them to grow and succeed.
