The Family Place:
Celebrating the Power of Growing and Community
In 2014, The Family Place barked upon a mission to expand services, to not only include caring for the basic needs of families experiencing the devastating loss of permanent housing, but also to that of administering a comprehensive, familial educational platform called, Going Home. Going Home includes: Casa de la Bella Montessori (est. 2014), Youth Development and Leadership program (spring 2016), and a 16-week adult Life Skills training course (est. 2015), with a goal to change the way shelter stays are spent, thus, ending repeated and generational homelessness.
The Family Place has partnered with the Urban Farm and Garden Alliance (UF&GA), becoming the 7th community garden in this amazing network, with clear goals that bolster the mission of The Family Place.
Mission: To assist families with children in shelter to gain confidence in building future goals that will lead to success of the entire family
