Family Development Program


Current research shows that to break the cycle of poverty and become self-sufficient, a family needs multiple services over a long period of time, supported by qualified staff that can act as teacher, mentor and advocate.

The Family Development Program is based on this research. Families in the program identify their individual barriers and develop a clear plan of small attainable goals, which will lead to self-sufficiency over a five year period. This is not an emergency or short-term program, but a structured family planning process of multiple services designed to get the family out of poverty.  Family members meet individually and as a unit with staff to work on their goals.


Eligibility

To be able to participate in the Family Development Program, the household income must be at or below 125 % of the current U. S Poverty Guidelines and the family must agree to work up to five years toward becoming self-sufficient.
