Mission Statement

First Avenues - HousingSolutions for Families takes an innovative approach to solving family homelessness by, providing loans to families and individuals in danger of eviction to prevent families from entering shelter; relocating families to areas where they have family, friends, resources and housing; and working to rapidly re-house families who are in shelter programs.First Avenues, a program of Hamilton Family Center, believes that part of the solution to this problem is the creation of temporary rental subsidies that motivate families to leave shelters and to increase their income.

Description

Helping to solve the homeless problem among families with children has been our mission for more than 21 years. Our mission includes preventing families from entering shelter, providing loans to families and individuals in danger of eviction, relocating families to areas where they have family, friends, resources and housing, and working to rapidly re-house families who are in shelter programs. Most of these efforts are part of what Hamilton Family Center considers to be a local interpretation and application of a Housing First philosophy.
