Prevention and Stabilization Program
In this Prevention and Stabilization program, FPE works to place our shelter families into permanent housing as well as to prevent evictions and homelessness for other non-shelter family clients. Services for this program include rental assistance and case management services for up to one year. Families work with a case manager to achieve their goals for stable housing, independence, and self-sufficiency. Our programming also extends to individual needs, and includes services such as job training, job search and interviewing skills; seminars on workplace protocol, budget management, landlord/tenant relationships, apartment maintenance, parenting, and wellness and nutrition; and assistance with childcare and transportation options. Families in the Prevention and Stabilization program join our short-term shelter families in becoming part of our FPE community. Many clients stay connected for years, attending our holiday parties and making use of additional services such as the disbursement of donated clothing, toiletry items, books, and toys.
If you would like to apply for services, please contact Stephanie Edwards, Housing Stabilization Case Manager.
