We also manage and bring case management to families living in the Nhon’s Place apartments which houses low income families. We provide transitional housing to families who are at greatest risks of homelessness, those who need to bring structure to their lives, create a stable living situation of themselves and children.
Like many families who live with housing instability, what we do for vulnerable children and their parents keeps them out of unsafe environments and provides them with a living environment that is supportive and provides the family supports that brings stable living.
