Class of Housing/Services: Shelter and services provided.
The Lorain County Family Promise IHN program provides an ideal solution for family homelessness because it is easily replicable and also flexible enough to address the needs of each community. There are five key components which contribute to it's success.
8-13 host congregations accommodate up to 14 people for a week at a time on a rotating basis. The congregation provides dinner, overnight accommodations, breakfast and a bag lunch.
Guests use a local day center from 7:30 AM to 5:00 PM, where the Case Manager provides case management services. There, guests pursue employment, tend pre-school children, shower, and do laundry. The day center provides guests with a mailing address and a base for housing and employment searches. Many guests are employed during the day, and older children attend school.
SOCIAL SERVICE AGENCIES
Local social service agencies refer families to the Network. The agencies may also help guests find housing, jobs, and benefits.
The Network transports guests to and from the day center as well as between host congregations while children are transported to their school or origin.
