Homeless Families Foundation (HFF)

Their Family Services works directly with families that are homeless and living in shelter. This is not an emergency shelter. Families who live in a shelter are referred.  Once a family is referred, HFF helps them move from homelessness to stable housing and self-sufficiency. This is a combined effort of the Case Managers, a Housing Liaison, and Resource Specialists; working to provide financial support, new home set-up, goal setting and education to guide each family to self-sufficiency.
