Since 1988 Advocates for Homeless Families (AFHF) has provided Transitional Housing to homeless families who desire to achieve stable and independent living. The organization also, through its Families Forward Program, serves families who are at-risk of becoming homeless and supports them in maintaining their self-sustainability and improving their standard of living. Both programs provide families individualized case management and weekly Life Skills Workshops.

Annually AFHF provides housing and support services to an average of 90 – 100 adults and children representing 13,505 bed nights. AFHF family graduates, after one year of completing their program, have remained in stable housing and are either employed full-time and/or pursuing educational goals.
