Save the Family offers three housing programs to meet the unique needs of each family we serve. Rapid Re-housing, Transitional, and Step Up to Independence make up our distinct housing programs.
Save the Family utilizes best practices including Critical Time Intervention, Progressive Engagement, Trauma Informed Care, Motivational Interviewing and the Outcomes Star measurement tool to maximize the chances of long term success for each family.
Save the Family provides career development services, mental health and substance abuse support, financial literacy and budgeting classes, and other programs to meet the needs of parents in our programs.
Save the Family offers an on-site, drop-in children’s center for clients, after school and summer programs, and support for extracurricular activities and summer camps for the more than 1,200 youth we serve each year.
Founded in 1988, Save the Family is the East Valley’s leading provider of housing and services for more than 650 homeless and impoverished families and children each year. We provide eviction prevention services, housing, case management and supportive services. Families are matched with the program best suited to their individual needs and abilities. Once housed, Case Managers help parents set and achieve goals geared toward ensuring the family’s long-term housing and financial stability, which often can include securing employment, moving up in the workplace, improving financial literacy, building life-skills, and addressing substance abuse and mental health. The Case Manager helps the family through their entire journey to self-sufficiency.
Our supportive services complement each family’s goals and include career services, budgeting classes, parenting classes, other life-skills classes, and access to in-house mental health and substance abuse support. We also provide drop-in child care, afterschool and summer programs for children – all focused on halting cycles of homelessness and poverty. Supportive services are also available to families residing in ARM (Affordable Rental Movement) of Save the Family’s affordable housing program.
