Interfaith Family Services
- Family Empowerment Program: Interfaith’s Family Empowerment Program is designed for individuals who are unemployed or struggling financially. Our new Family Empowerment Program allows families, who do not reside with us, to have access to Interfaith’s resources including career coaching, free childcare, optional rental and/or utility assistance, financial coaching and counseling services. Interfaith has free on-site childcare 0-18 as well as after-school and summer program. This is a DART accessible site.
- Housing for Homeless Families:Interfaith’s Home & Hope Program provides housing for homeless families in one of our 25 lovingly decorated, furnished apartments. The apartments are rent-free if families enter the program unemployed. Upon obtaining employment, Interfaith requires a monthly occupancy charge of 30% of the net family income. To encourage savings, Interfaith returns 100% of that charge to families who save $500 or more and successfully complete all other program requirements.
In addition to housing, parents are required to meet weekly with their personal success coach and financial empowerment coach to provide the accountability and support needed to reach their goals. Additionally, unemployed and underemployed parents must participate in our Career Development Program until viable employment is obtained. We also provide on-site counseling, child-care assistance, after-school & summer programs, and life skills training.
