CHF serves families with children who are classified as “New Poor” (families who are homeless for the first time) or “Working Poor” (families who earn low wages and cannot keep up with the rising cost of living, including housing).
|CHF houses families for 18 months to 2 years, during which time the adults must be attending school and/or working in a position that will allow their families to become self-sufficient by the end of the program. A variety of programs have been established to aid families in reaching this goal.|
CHF serves approximately 47 – 72 families annually, with a daily residential population of approximately 240 – 360 individuals daily.
