Safe & Stable Homes: Ending Family Homelessness
New and increased gifts to Safe & Stable Homes are doubled by Ascension Wisconsin from 7/1/21 to 6/30/22 up to $100,000.
Everything starts with the home. Whether it’s an address so you can be employed, or being able to stay in the same school all year, or having a place to cook a healthy meal together—we know that the root of all good things is a sense of place and a sense of home.
Yet many families in our community don't have a safe and stable home or are one missed rent or mortgage payment away from homelessness.
Ending family homelessness may sound impossible, but it isn't. In reality, there are already a number of service models operating today that provide effective solutions to homelessness. By joining the fight through United Way's Safe & Stable Homes initiative, we will end family homelessness in our community by 2023.
OUR GOAL: END FAMILY HOMELESSNESS BY 2023.
An end to family homelessness means that every community will have a comprehensive response in place that ensures homelessness is prevented whenever possible, or if it can’t be prevented, it is a rare, brief, and one-time experience.
