Becoming a Guest

Our program accepts only three to four families at a time so we can focus our resources on quality of care, greatly increasing the chances for a long-term, positive outcome. 

Most of our guests are referred to us by partner agencies in the area. 

Our criteria for acceptance are:

  • We accept only pre-screened families with young children who have recently lost their home.
  • Our families must exhibit initiative and have a track record of self-sufficiency to be accepted.
  • All guests must complete a stabilization plan to prepare them for independence.
  • All guests are subject to drug screening and background check.
