Strengthening Our Community

Family Friends Association helps homeless or near homeless families stabilize their lives and find or maintain permanent housing. For an impoverished family, an unexpected expense or a decrease in income can result in eviction and homelessness.

Through Emergency Family Shelter, Homeless Prevention Programs and our newest program Outreach to Homeless Families we address the needs of a wide range of families, from those who have become homeless to those who only need rental assistance for a limited time. More

We are so thankful for the support from our
