FPE Announces Community Housing Collaborative with Rincon United Methodist Church

Posted by on Feb 3, 2015 in Blog, Featured | 0 comments

Community Housing Collaborative Family Promise is excited to announce a new housing partnership with Rincon United Methodist Church. The Community Housing Collaborative will allow a once homeless family, the opportunity to live in a transitional housing unit after completion of the initial Family Promise program. The transitional housing unit is being provided by Rincon UMC with Family Promise continuing case management services with the family. Families in the CHC will be asked to pay building fees based on income and will continue to look for permanent housing and full time employment. These families will continue to receive life skills, financial management, work readiness, and personal enrichment classes through Family Promise. This collaborative will offer families the ability to practice real world financial and household management. Overall, the program will allow families more time to achieve a sustainable income and financial stability. Currently, 14.1% of households in Effingham have at least one of the following housing problems; overcrowding, high housing costs, lack of kitchen, or lack of plumbing facilities. Due to the lack of affordable housing and the complete nonexistence of transitional housing services, these families are often forced to double up or live in dangerous housing or cars. There is a critical need for transitional housing and support services in our community. Family Promise hopes to expand the Community Housing Collaborative to include other church owned properties as well as privately owned rental units. For more information on the Community Housing Collaborative and Family Promise please go to www.effinghamfamilypromise.org. For more information on Rincon United Methodist Church please go to...
