We know that the journey home starts with secure housing, but that's just the beginning.
At Friends Association, we build family well-being by providing opportunities and meeting the needs of children and their parents together.
We Believe In…
Housing First is a research-based solution to ending homelessness that prioritizes providing housing to individuals experiencing homelessness as quickly as possible without preconditions.
A two-generation approach builds family well-being by intentionally and simultaneously working with children and the adults in their lives together.
Trauma-informed care is a service approach that acknowledges the widespread, long-term impacts of trauma, understands signs and symptoms of trauma, and responds by integrating knowledge about trauma into all policies and practice.
