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.
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 twenty-four months.
Family Promise has developed and implemented other initiatives in addition to shelter and affordable housing , as well as work with other community partners to address various aspects of stabilization. Some 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.
