Families Moving Forward

Genesis Home works to end homelessness for families with children and young adults by providing housing and supportive services to foster independence.
From Homelessness to Stability
 
Every 2 minutes a child becomes homeless in America. 19% of the children in America live in poverty and 1.3 million children are homeless. There is help and support systems for these children and their parents. Since 1989, hundreds of homeless families have entered Families Moving Forward during a time of personal crisis. FMF offers a safe, stable atmosphere where families rebuild their lives working towards permanent housing and employment. We can end homelessness, 1 family at a time. project reportread updates from the field
Summer Camp for Homeless Kids
 
Summer Camp is a wonderful experience for any child. For the children living at Genesis Home it is an absolute necessity. Families housed in our facility are all working hard to get back on their feet. When school ends we want to provide summer camp opportunities for our kids. Providing a camp experience gives parents peace of mind, knowing their children are well cared for and engaged. This enables our parents to focus on their own goals of self-sufficiency and independence. project reportread updates from the field
Help Make A Shelter A Home
 
Genesis Home in Durham, North Carolina provides transitional shelter for homeless families. As each new family moves in we refurbish their room to make them it as welcoming and comfortable as possible. With 15 families staying an average of six months or less, the cost of refurbishing becomes an urgent need for our shelter. project reportread updates from the field
Genesis Home's Circles of Support
 
Circles of Support is designed to empower homeless families with the skills to sustain employment, housing and improve their overall quality of life. This program was launched in August 2010 as part of our program for homeless families. We match volunteer support circles with families transitioning from our shelter to permanent housing. Family stability and ending the cycle of chronic homelessness are the primary goals. 84% of homeless families are female headed without a support system. project reportread updates from the field
