FAMILIES

The Life Guides program seeks families that have shown a commitment to making changes on their own to benefit their future. Our participating families need emotional support, guidance, and accountability to help them reach their goals. Families should be somewhat stabilized, yet benefit from a supportive partnership. Our program offers consistent agency support as we partner with them on their personal journey.
