Housing Support for Families

Sarah’s life was forever changed after unlocking the door to her new apartment. Just days before, she was sleeping on a relative’s couch as she prepared for the birth of her twins. Because of you, she’s one of two dozen homeless single mothers who received rental assistance and home-based parenting support from Florence Crittenton. She and her babies now sleep safely in their own beds and she is preparing to return to work.

Our Impact

As a result of the support received, our families:

  • 90% are employed
  • 87% have moved on to permanent housing
