Preventing families from becoming homeless in the first place with budgeting classes, rental assistance, and connections to other community resources.
With more than 40% of Americans a $400 expense away from financial distress, the threat of crisis looms closely for too many families. Preventing families from spiraling into homelessness is an essential part of the Family Promise mission.
Family Promise of Hamilton County offers a variety of prevention strategies to help keep families in their homes. These strategies include attending eviction court weekly to connect with families who are facing eviction by offering mediation services with landlords, budgeting and tenancy classes, limited rental assistance when available, and referrals to other agencies when necessary. We encourage families using a strengths-based approach to curate a plan unique to each situation. Listed below are some of the many initiatives we use to prevent housing insecurity.
