Graduate Support Services
Helping the families we serve not only succeed today, but remain stable in their housing, financial capability and career paths tomorrow.
Workforce development. Partners in Housing. Financial capability. Health and wellness. Homelessness has many causes and housing stability involves many solutions. Family Promise of Butler County has developed and implemented a graduate services program that addresses the needs of stabilization after leaving shelter.
Family Promise of Butler County gets to the heart of the core needs that families face, such as financial literacy, childcare and job training, in order to regain self-sufficiency. Aftercare initiatives find ways to match the strengths of local volunteers and the interests of local corporations with the needs of our guests, like continued financial literacy, good tenancy practices and mentoring. Similarly, many initiatives build off core tenets of the foundational shelter program itself, leading to efforts like food assistance, furniture and clothing donation, and health and wellness programs.
Probably no community initiative is more vital than the many housing programs Family Promise of Butler County (FPBC) partners with. Currently, FPBC partners with other agencies in housing programs, that include Permanent Housing, Permanent Supportive Housing, Transitional Housing, and others.
But our goal is not simply getting families into housing; it is keeping them in housing.
Key to this is identifying needs specific to the local community and tapping into the diverse resources our volunteer pool and partnerships provide. The result is families no longer at risk of homelessness.
Family Promise of Butler County works with families to create the basis for security and stability that separates families from poverty and allows them and their children to aspire to the future every child deserves.
