Families

Overview

Friendship Place is dedicated to supporting women at risk or experiencing homelessness in rebuilding their lives and achieving a life of stability for their self and their family. About 90% of the participants we serve in our permanent supportive housing (PSH) and rapid-rehousing programs are single mothers. Here are a few of the many ways we help women in our community:

Neighbors First Families

Neighbors First Families provides PSH for highly-vulnerable, chronically homeless families. All families in the program are provided with permanent housing, along with comprehensive long-term case management support that ensures their stability. Neighbors First Families gives families who have faced extreme hardship a better quality of life, in both the short and long term. Click here to learn more.

Families First – Veterans

Families First is a program under our Veterans First division. The program provides self sufficiency services to Prince George’s County, Maryland veterans and their families. Families First helps veterans find stable and permanent housing through rental subsidies and intensive, wraparound case management. Click here to learn more.

Family Connect

Family Connect helps families that are experiencing or at risk of experiencing homelessness to achieve housing stability, self-sufficiency, and financial independence. Family Connect provides short and long term support based on a family’s needs. To resolve a family’s housing insecurities, case managers are able to offer a variety of services–including financial assistance for move in costs, continued rental assistance, employment services (through our AimHire program), referrals to other forms of assistance, and more.
