The mission of the Family Support Center's LifeStart Village is to move single parents with children from dependency to self-sufficiency. In FSC's LifeStart Village, single parents and their children move from homelessness or near homelessness into safe, stable housing where they develop the necessary skills to create a stable, nurturing environment.
In the dorm-like Phase I and under the direction of a full time director, the parents learn to become self-sufficient. They receive Life Focus training, parent education, financial budgeting education, are assisted in completing their GED and acquiring and maintaining adequate employment.
Upon completion of Phase I, the parents graduate to a self-sufficient rental town home or cottage (Phase II) and may ultimately have the opportunity to become the owner of a CROWN (rent to own) twin home in Phase III.
Parents must have custody of their children and meet resident requirements prior to moving in. All residents are required to abide by a strict code of conduct and program participation.
Transitional housing is available in LifeStart Village for a total of 54 families.
