Outreach and Aftercare
The Aftercare/Outreach Program provides supportive services to former residents of HOPE House as well as victims and survivors of domestic violence who have never been sheltered through FCSS. The Aftercare/Outreach Coordinator works to aid a family in establishing an independent life. The program, along with the shelter, tries to assist a resident in moving independently by providing her with needed referrals, and if eligible, household items and some furniture. Our services provide support long after someone leaves the shelter.
