recently received a grant for $20,000 from the First National Bank of Omaha
to support the stable housing, navigation, and crisis support services provided by the Thriving Families
program (formerly Street Outreach Services), which assists families and their children who are experiencing homelessness or are at-risk for becoming homeless in obtaining/maintaining permanent housing.
Grant funding will help support the Thriving Families program to serve approximately 200 individuals (families and children) each year through housing referral and emergency assistance funding, referral to shelter/transitional living, resource/health navigation, and crisis support. Funding will be used to support direct client services including personnel costs and provide funds to help youth and families finance HUD approved housing costs (rent, utility support, etc.) as well as other support related to stable housing. The program provides clients with permanent/stable housing support, health navigation/education, and service referral to ensure they obtain or maintain housing and other services.
