The Home-to-Home program is a 90-day transformational program for homeless families with children that are willing to put forth the effort to become working adults who will manage their finances and households responsibly and provide a healthy and stable living environment for their children with the support and guidance of Family Promise of Montgomery County. Home-to-Home encompasses pre-entry case management, immediate stability response, preparation for independent living, funding for family transition, and includes the ROC (Reaching Our Children) program for the children whose families are being served by Family Promise of Montgomery County. The goal of Home-to-Home is to provide direct, hands on case management with a holistic approach to families in need and to serve an average of 24 families a year.
The Home-to-Home program works to empower parents by giving them the tools and resources they need to find and secure full-time employment and to obtain additional help for them and their children. Parents work with their case manager to develop their family’s goals and determine the steps needed to attain them. Families are educated on parenting, stress and anger management, budgeting, healthy living, and poison information through weekly required life skill classes and personalized financial sessions with individual bankers. This program works with families to help transform their thinking, decision-making and daily habits so that they fully understand that each choice they make greatly impacts their entire family and that they are in control of their planning and future outcomes. Home-to-Home is finalized with financial assistance and donations to aid families with their transition into living on their own again.
