Affordable Housing & Graduate Support Services
Helping the families we serve not only succeed today but remain stable in their housing, finances and career paths tomorrow.
Homelessness has many causes and housing stability involves many solutions. Family Promise Affiliates have developed and implemented more than 1,000 different programs that address every aspect of stabilization.
Some get to the heart of core needs, such as childcare and job training, families face in order to regain self-sufficiency. Other initiatives find ways to match the strengths of local volunteers and the interests of local corporations with the needs of our guests, like financial literacy and mentoring. Similarly, many initiatives build off core tenets of the foundational shelter program itself, leading to efforts like food assistance, furniture and clothing donation, and health and wellness programs.
FPCA, recognizing that the cost for renting a typical two-bedroom apartment has risen 35% in less than ten years, launched a partnership with the City of Mobile in 2015 to offer affordable housing to vulnerable families. It comprises three apartment units for transitional housing services lasting from twelve to fifteen months.
