Direct services are the nuts and bolts, boots on the ground, nitty-gritty hard work of getting families housed and providing the supports that keep them housed and thriving. Caring, knowledgeable, persistent Case Managers who help work through problems, advocate for resources and help set goals. Classes that help families learn the ins-and-outs and tips and tricks of achieving financial stability in one of the least affordable areas of the U.S. . The thankless, invisible, but incredibly necessary tasks of filling out mountains of documentation to make sure it all goes smoothly. Your donation helps keep the engine humming.
