Family Ever After
A family aftercare program for those who have graduated from Family Promise of North Fulton/DeKalb.
While our families are ready for graduation when they leave, there can be a range of issues, especially in the first 6 months, that leave families vulnerable to falling back into homelessness. Moving in costs are high and starting up utility costs are expensive. Helping families stay stable for a time after the Family Promise program can be a huge weight off our families shoulders.
This program includes: The Case Manager checking in with families on sliding scale (weekly - monthly). In addition, we would pay $40.00 weekly towards childcare expenses for six (6) months. The Case Manager would provide monthly training sessions on healthy meal planning and purchasing nutritious foods. Fast food gift cards would be provided as an incentive for family weekend outings. Other program supports would include financial counseling, budget setting, and attending community offered financial literacy classes.
Additional program help based on situational needs:
- Transitional childcare resource
- Grocery/fast food gift cards, gas gift cards
- Supplies to offset costs: cleaning products, paper supplies, detergent, etc.
- Dry Food donations
- Utility Bill assistance
- Car Repair assistance, payments, insurance
- Advocacy, connection to additional resources
Our goal is for every graduating family to succeed!
