Family Services programs have been placing homeless working families and seniors in permanent housing since 1988. Family Services provides transitional housing, assistance for permanent housing, mentoring, life-skills training, education, and case management through the following programs: Strategic Transitional Assistance and Response (STAR) Program: A unique transition program at The Crossing providing assistance for men, women, families and seniors, to guide them toward sustaining a self-sufficient lifestyle. This is accomplished as the residents respond to the program goals of a steady income, efficient budgeting, long-term planning, and healthy lifestyles. Family and Senior Homeless Initiative (FSHI): A response to Mayor Hickenlooper's call to the faith community for 1,000 congregations to embrace and mentor 1,000 homeless families through Denver's Road Home, his ten year plan to end homelessness, instituted in 2005. FSHI pairs a faith community mentor team with a homeless family or senior to provide first month's rent and security deposit, as well as mentoring, with the end goal of sustainable permanent housing. Family Refugee Services (FRS): In partnership with Lutheran Family Services, provides services and mentoring for refugee families. Family Rescue Ministry (FRM): Helps homeless working families secure stable housing by funding the security deposit and first month's rent payment in a long-term housing solution. FRM also pairs pre-screened families with mentor teams from local congregations and organizations to help guide the families toward long-term self-sufficiency.
