Homeless families have been the fastest growing segment of the homeless population for some time. It is tragic that so many children go hungry and are exposed to harsh environments with their parents.
These families find it difficult to live with family or friends for very long, and emergency shelter only offers temporary relief.
The Good News Family Shelter offers homeless families their own, fully furnished apartment with all the financial, educational, emotional, medical and spiritual support needed to make a complete recovery. These families may stay as long as they need.
Families entering the program come with some combination of financial, legal, employment, addiction, relationship and educational problems that have brought them to this low point in their lives.
Our goal is to reach these families with the hope of the Gospel and help them overcome their destructive behavior that makes successful independent living difficult or impossible.
