Francis Court Transitional Housing
Francis court program is designed for homeless families with children. The main goal of our program is help homeless families become self-sufficient, productive and contributing citizens. Our program consists of 16 units on average we have 24 adults and 40 children housed here. The family can stay at Francis court for up to 24 months.
Once a family is accepted they are given a furnished apartment and supplies, such as dishes, silverware, sheets cups etc. We are solely depended on our community to donate these items. Most of our families come from a lifestyle of unemployment, addiction, parole, probation and poverty that led to homelessness and children in foster care. While living at Francis Court the goal is to rebuild their lives. In the short time the parents are here they have a structured environment that consist of rules such as: curfews, housekeeping, and attending required classes. Case Management is a vital source in helping a family, each parent has a case manager they meet with 1 to 2 times a week. During case management goals are set and resources are given for that week. This is how major accomplishments are met.
