DAYCENTER

Serves as a home base while adults look for jobs and apply for services. Also provides laundry facilities, showers, telephones, a mailing address, computer facilities, and a children's playroom (for program guests only). The Family Promise Case Manager is located at the Day Center.

TRANSPORTATION

Families who do not have their own vehicle are transported to work, school, or the Day Center each morning, then back to the congregation facility each evening.

CASE MANAGEMENT
& LIFE SKILLS

 A skilled case manager assesses each family upon entrance into the program, determining those factors that contributed to the family homelessness. The Case Manager links families with services and resources and helps them find affordable housing.

The "Keys to Good Tenancy" program identifies the rights and responsibilities of being a good renter.

The "Connect to Work" supports our shelter participants by covering licensure and training costs necessary to increase employability and income potential.

Help Us Move In (HUMI)

HUMI provides homeless prevention and move-in assistance program. The Homeless No More Grant provides one-time financial assistance to families who are facing eviction, or are already homeless. 

 

Whenever possible, this program seeks to intervene before a family falls into the cycle of homelessness. 

Local match from community sponsors is critical to this program. Please contact us if you can help leverage $8 for every $1 donated.

 

Please thank our EVERYDAY sponsors for helping keep the mission of Family Promise of Gainesville going forward to a new day!
