Happy Holidays from HomeStretch

The heart of HomeStretch's mission is helping homeless families get back on their feet and into permanent, sustainable housing.  This is no small endeavor since many families typically come to us earning salaries at or below the poverty threshold.  Supporting a family at this income level brings much financial hardship; the family cannot make ends meet and inevitably becomes homeless.  

HomeStretch gives homeless parents and their children a safe and comfortable place to live while simultaneously helping them address the root causes of their situation and return to a life of self-reliance and stability.  After graduating from HomeStretch, the families have a strong grasp on their finances, have reduced insurmountable debt and have accumulated savings.  Many have even increased their income through job skills training and improved employment.  

HomeStretch seeks four outcomes
 for the families we serve:

HomeStretch provides assistance
 in four primary ways:

  • Stable Housing
  • Stable Employment 
  • Stable Finances
  • Stable Families
  • LifeSkills Education
  • Supportive Housing (while in the program)
  • Volunteer Mentoring
  • Personalized Case Management

Through the work of dedicated Family Coordinators, volunteer support teams and life skills workshops, our families are armed with all the tools they need to succeed.

'Tis the Season for
Thankful Giving!

Thanksgiving truly was a day of thanks for the families we serve. Every single family in the program was adopted for Thanksgiving this year! Members of the community or churches, HomeStretch staff, mentors and companies stepped up to provide delicious, fresh food so the parents could celebrate Thanksgiving and serve a beautiful dinner to their families. And with no impact to their budgets. That is a win-win-win!  It's just terrific the support that HomeStretch receives during the holidays and throughout the year.

Christmas and Holiday Giving is overwhelming and itís just the first week of December! HomeStretch families truly are blessed by the communityís generosity.
