F.A.C.E.S Host Home Program
F.A.C.E.S host home program is a homelessness prevention program that matches transgender young adults aged 18-24 who are currently experiencing homelessness or housing insecurity with volunteers in the community that open their hearts and homes. Hosts provide free shelter, food and mentorship while the young person stays with them. Staff members from the Host Home Program are responsible for providing or referring to services, assistance with goals, development of daily living and life skills, and assistance with necessities such as clothing hygiene products and transportation.
This program is about preventing homelessness at its core, but more so it is about creating ties in the community between adults and youth that go far beyond housing. When transgender individuals, have stable housing and the potential to create emotional and social connections with positive adult role models they have the foundation to thrive.
