2019 Homefirst Highlights
- 47 of Homefirst families that were either disabled or formerly homeless now live in permanent supportive housing. Meaning we will continue to support their efforts to overcome their challenges through intensive case management, counseling, and help with their disabilities (either physical or mental, we will help)!
- Homefirst distributed nearly 1,000 food bags to families, in partnership with Starfish Pantry.
- With the support our youth volunteers, Homefirst distributed 180 boxes of cereal and breakfast foods over the summer school break. This allowed us to address the hunger issues many of our families face each and every day.
- Homefirst continues to form partnerships and invites groups to get involved. The Greater Union County Jack and Jill Chapter helped us distribute over 120 baby care items, including diapers, books, blankets, play sets and more to help many of the single at-risk moms we work with at our Family Support Center.
- Over 100 books were donated to students to kick-off the 2019 school year.
Homefirst serves women and parents who are dealing with abuse, mental or physical disabilities or other trauma which affect their lives and ability to care for their families or maintain a permanent home.
