Freedom House has walked alongside nearly 1,500 families and over 2,800 children throughout the past 25 years.
In 2016, we served a total of 134 families in our programs.
55 families (60 adults and 123 children) were sheltered for 10,604 nights.
Our adults attended 45 parenting and budget/job readiness classes.
503 contacts were made with 66 past families (83 adults and 194 children).
79.35% of the needs of these families were met (care packages of hygiene and cleaning supplies, food, Goodwill vouchers and more).
In early 2017, Freedom House began implementing the Family Index, a data collection process developed by Ecumenical Partnership for Housing (EPH) to improve the "solutions" offered to the families we serve. The Family Index is completed by a trained case manager upon the entrance and exit of a family into and from programming. The Family Index examines 18 categories that impact a family's self sufficiency. The Family Index will provide a more targeted approach for developing and improving programming as well as case management focus. In addition, the Family Index is designed as a communication and development tool for our families. We expect to report the results of this new data collection process in 2018.
