What We Do
Emergency Shelter and Housing for Families
The pandemic has left an indelible mark on our organization, as we work with the hundreds of families now in or facing eviction. Consider: we face a waiting list of over 75-families who are requesting access to our shelter – the longest we’ve ever seen in the organization’s history. In response we’re activating a new Diversion Program to divert families from shelter and provide optional resources such as transportation to a family member that can assist.
We also provide assistance to families looking for affordable housing.
Support for Veterans
We realize that we must aggressively move forward to be a part of the affordable housing solution. It’s perhaps a best kept secret that we are the single largest provider of affordable housing to veterans that were formerly homeless. We currently operate one 54-unit affordable housing site for veterans, and also help veterans to find housing. Our vision is this: we will end veteran homelessness in Tallahassee by building more affordable housing in the upcoming years.
