The Light House’s Family Assistance program provides housing, education, workforce development and children’s needs for families who are impacted by homelessness and poverty. Despite the significant challenges related to the pandemic, The Light House is pleased to have served 17 adults and 25 children living in our emergency shelter, 3families living in our transitional housing apartments, and over 500 households through our Safe Harbour Resource Center that serves people who are at risk of homelessness. All of our residential families moved from crisis to stability through case management and intensive support services. Parenting skills and support services were offered to all our families and of the parents who participated in the program, all demonstrated improved parenting skills. Primary employment skills were improved in 100 percent of the families who participated in the employment readiness program. The Light House helped over 240 households find safe and stable permanent housing, despite myriad pandemic-related challenges outside of our control. Children were provided tutoring, school supplies, clothes and financial assistance for educational needs and child care was made available for parents.
