Family homelessness is damaging to everyone it touches. Save the Family empowers families to conquer homelessness and achieve life-long independence. We envision communities free from family homelessness.
Save the Family has been serving homeless families with children for more than 20 years. Founded in 1988, Save the Family was created to help homeless families become self-sufficient. In 1989, the agency acquired four housing units and served the first four families, who were referred from a local domestic violence shelter.
Early on, Save the Family recognized the need for services beyond just housing. Adult classes centered on parenting and personal growth and development, while children's classes offered expressive art activities, aimed at assisting children with sharing their experience of homelessness.
Program services now include career development, financial planning, education and support for domestic violence, tutoring, after-school classes and tuition dollars for summer camps and extracurricular activities.
Volunteers have, and will continue to play, an integral role in Save the Family's success. We rely on a robust volunteer base to provide various services such as: legal, medical and dental support, rehabilitation of our housing units, and classroom support as tutors and mentors.
Save the Family's success is a testament to the determination and hard work invested by homeless families and domestic violence victims who truly desire a better life. The growth of our facilities, and the expansion of our services make it possible for families to conquer homelessness and achieve life-long independence.
