Family Housing

Our Family Housing program provides temporary housing and support to families facing homelessness. The program helps to support families to find permanent housing solutions removing the barrier of homelessness by helping them move toward self-sufficiency. In addition to housing support, we offer courses in parenting, financial management, career coaching, and personal development. Upon graduation, families have established savings and steady employment.

Eligible Families

Wellroot accepts families with one or more children, who are at imminent risk of homelessness.
