Did you know?

There is a common misconception that family homelessness is self-induced, or that somehow the family is to blame. When we get to know families facing homelessness, we discover that many times people are working as hard as they can and still cannot afford a place to live.


While the circumstances surrounding each family’s housing crisis differ, there is one universal truth: These are parents who care deeply about their children and who truly want to provide a better life for their family.


To achieve their goals, these families need people to believe in them, to give them opportunities, guidance and support, all provided with patience and empathy. This is where Families Helping Families excels.
