What we aim to solve

SOURCE: Self-reported by organization

Youth and family homelessness are growing issues in our community. Last school year, 3,108 K-12th-grade students experienced homelessness; approximately 1 in 24 school-age children. When non-school age siblings and parents are added in, estimates show 12,000 people in family units are experiencing homelessness in Spokane County per year. At the Family Promise of Spokane, Open Doors 24/7 Family Emergency Shelter, 52% of those we serve are children, most of whom are under the age of 12. Children never choose to be homeless, nor do they possess the ability to prevent it. The best practice for getting our children into stable housing and assist them in maintaining it is to equip their parents now with the knowledge, tools, and resources necessary to maintain a stable environment for their children.

What are the organization's current programs, how do they measure success, and who do the programs serve?

OPEN DOORS

OPEN DOORS is the only 24/7 low-barrier walk-in Emergency Shelter for whole families in Spokane County. We define a family as any person(s) caring for a minor child or who are pregnant. We also accept pets (limited to cats and dogs), because we know that pets are family too. OPEN DOORS provides enhanced shelter services such as showers, laundry, computers, kitchen, food resources, secure belonging storage, safe and secure parking, a car cleanout station, and an area for pets. Additionally, OPEN DOORS provides a private nursery and nursing room, an infirmary, private meeting space for case managers and CPS child welfare check-ins and visitations, on-site diversion and Homeless Families Coordinated Assessment services, as well as satellite office space for other nonprofits serving families experiencing homelessness.

BRIDGES is a long-term shelter program (up to 90 days) which partners with 35 local congregations to provide 24/7 shelter and targeted case management for families experiencing homelessness. Of the 35 churches, 14 will host families in the evening for a week at a time and provide dinner, overnight accommodations, breakfast in the morning, and a welcoming and supportive community. During the day, families reside at the BRIDGES Day Center where they work with a case manager to reduce their barriers in employment, education, health, childcare, etc., establish a stable income source, and work to secure stable, permanent housing.

VILLAGE is an aftercare program that assists families with children transition well into stable housing. The program impacts previously homeless families by working to ensure they remain in housing and do not experience recidivism. Rates of returning to homelessness are significantly higher in the first two years after securing housing. VILLAGE helps families overcome this risk by addressing and educating participants in the areas of Income, Education, Health, Community, and Support Systems. In its pilot year, VILLAGE has served 72 individuals, including 37 children, composing 20 families; 100% of whom remain in stable housing, with five families remaining stable for over one year.
