Providing solutions to homelessness in rural Kansas through prevention and housing solutions for the homeless.
My Father's House Community Services is a nonprofit organization dedicated to programming and advocacy for those who are experiencing homelessness, have a low income or who are struggling and underserved in some other way. The organization was founded in 2003 and opened it's first housing program, a transitional housing project, in 2006. Currently our catchment area for services is Miami and Linn counties in Kansas but the organization has plans to grow it's programming and catchment area into additional rural areas as its capacity for providing services increases.
1. Homeless prevention is an excellent first solution. It helps families by reducing disruptions and losses caused by homelessness.
2. Transitional Housing can provide a long-term opportunity to "catch up" on things so that permanent housing can be obtained and maintained.
