People who are homeless are not social inadequates. They are friends without homes.
Friends Without Homes A program of It Starts With Us Foundation
Friends Without Homes is working to help individuals and families get off the streets and into permanent housing. We work to empower individuals, families, and communities by providing support and resources to enable clients to reach greater self-sufficiency. Our program supports clients in developing and pursuing employment goals and addressing the unique barriers each client faces as they transition from homelessness. We partner with those who are motivated to help themselves.
At Friends Without Homes we strive to end homelessness for our clients by providing them with a solid foundation from which to move forward with their lives. Our clients learn the tools they need to be their very best selves and gain a sense of self-respect and purpose.
Our clients often encounter our agency due to community outreach, or they find us as they need help meeting an emergency need such as rent assistance or a bus pass. As we establish trust and build relationships, we provide other case management services such as money management, independent living/life skills, education support, employment coaching, networking, reliable transportation, and more. It is our desire to promote the health and well-being of those in our geographic area through the cooperation of like-minded agencies, organizations and the community.
