Family Stability Programs

Overview

Latino Network works to ensure our youth and their families have the best chance for success. For our low-income families, however, a job loss, unexpected emergency room visit, or rent hike can be detrimental to their children’s future and their families’ stability. Children often move from school to school while the family moves from one living situation to another.

Latino Network’s Family Stability Programs help families to connect to the resources and assistance they need. Our bilingual/bicultural case managers provide culturally-specific, intensive support to help families:

  • Secure stable, safe and affordable housing,
  • Find and maintain work or enroll in job training,
  • Locate emergency rent and utility assistance,
  • Connect to resources and build a supportive community,
  • Increase life-skill capabilities, and
  • Set goals for self-sufficiency.

Our Family Stability Programs engage low-income households to become more resilient and to avoid and withstand crisis, achieve stability, and access opportunities for a bright and prosperous future for the whole family.
