Coalition for the Homeless
50th Street Family Program is located in a residential neighborhood and is specifically for families with children who have become homeless.
Temporary housing is provided in 12 individually furnished apartments with full kitchens. Participants in the program are expected to provide their own food and prepare all meals for their family. Families with incomes are expected to place funds in a personal escrow account. A referral from the Virginia Williams Family Resource Center (VWFRC) is one of the requirements for placement into this program. Along with other trained staff, a Program Director is onsite to manage shelter operations.
Application: A family must be referred by the Virginia Williams Family Resource Center.
