    OVERVIEW: Pairs homeless or at-risk families with a case manager who helps them to identify the problems standing in their way and find solutions. Program requires a one-year commitment from participants and they must be clean and sober for six months prior to entry and must remain that way.

    1) TRANSITIONAL HOUSING: Housing fee is 30% of family's income. Parents must be involved in an educational or training program which will prepare them to secure permanent housing on their own.
