Program Goals: The primary goal of this program is to enable homeless parents to obtain long term, safe housing and to achieve self-sufficiency. Young women and men in the project develop an individualized plan with their case manager to achieve this goal. To take part in this program participants obtain and sustain employment, or participate in apprenticeship programs, or attend school. Upon completing the program, participants will be expected to have sufficient financial resources to support themselves and their family, and to be employed or attending an education or vocational program. By providing an opportunity for parents to stabilize their lives, the project improves the chances that their children will also have a better and more productive life.
