When did this program start?
We started the Flow Program in the spring of 2017.
How many families have been helped by the Flow Program?
Since the Flow Program launched we’ve helped 150 clients, 120 of these clients have received a section 8 voucher allowing them to move on to their own permanent housing.
As a case manager why is this type of work so important to you?
Having a support system is crucial to living a good life. Not having housing while raising children and supporting a family is very difficult and I love helping my clients find and develop the tools to become self-sufficient and better their lives.
How can folks help support this program?
Donations and volunteering greatly support our mission and are always greatly appreciated.
