Family Shelter and Housing
New Beginnings Family Shelter and Housing programs provide emergency shelter and rapid re-housing for families experiencing homelessness. Each of our housing programs includes intensive case management and provides job search guidance. Homeless individuals, couples, and families live in apartments of their choosing throughout the community and work closely with their case manager to develop family goal plans that identify short- and long-term objectives with timelines for overcoming barriers to self-sufficiency. Prioritization is given to families with minor children in their custody and specialized services are offered for veteran families. Limited funds are also available to help low-income families avoid homelessness.
The Fair Housing Act protects people from discrimination when they are renting, buying, or securing financing for any housing. The prohibitions specifically cover discrimination because of race, color, national origin, religion, sex, disability and the presence of children.
