SUPPORT FOR FAMILIES

64% of Denver's homeless population is people in families with children. We are there to help them get back on their feet.

Participating families are provided a private room and three meals a day.

Intensive case management begins as soon as a family is accepted into the program with an assessment that identifies the root causes of homelessness and what skill areas need to be addressed for both the parents and children.

The shelter houses, on average, 100 families each year

Transitional housing is available to families in need for up to a year as case managers continue working with the families to meet their goals.

Parents can access valuable life skills classes during their stay. Parenting skills, job readiness, nutrition, food safety, and financial literacy are offered to establish the skill sets necessary to secure employment and remain in permanent housing after graduation.

All parents in the program are required to obtain employment within the first 60 days after moving into the center. Once employment is secured, families begin saving 50% of their income, which will be used to help them cover rent, utilities, and other expenses associated with long-term housing.

Lambuth Family Center strives to provide a safe & warm environment for the entire family. The resource room offers books, games, and computers for use by children and parents. The Salvation Army works to create a sense of normalcy for children through birthday celebrations, family movie nights, and holiday parties. A large playground is available to encourage physical activity.
