What is Families Forward, Inc.?
The purpose for which this organization is formed is to (1) help families achieve and maintain self-sufficiency though housing, food, counseling, education, and other supportive services; (2) combat blight and deterioration by revitalizing communities and working alongside local government to plan their neighborhoods' future, and by developing energy efficient, affordable and healthy homes, parks, gardens, shared facilities, and more; (3) acquiring, providing, developing, financing, rehabilitating, owning and operating decent, safe and sanitary housing affordable to persons and households of low-income where no adequate housing exists for such groups; and (4) serving, directly or through a wholly owned limited liability company, as a general partner in limited partnerships which will own and operate housing for the benefit of low-income persons and households.
By virtue of increased awareness and through community partnerships, the HAD established Families Forward Inc. in 2019 and is currently seeking nonprofit 501(c)3 status as an organization for addressing the plight of homelessness in Boyle County.
In 2020, this agency received its first grant to lease an apartment for one year and provide hotel vouchers and wrap-around services for those experiencing homelessness. Through generous donations, the agency was able to lease a second apartment unit in January 2021.
