F.A.S.T. Program - Resources for Families Experiencing Homelessness

We Are Here to Support You

If you live in a shelter or a transitional housing program or if you are temporarily living with friends or family because you do not have a permanent address; or if you live in a motel or campground because you cannot find or afford housing, or you live in a car, abandoned building, or a place not normally designed for sleeping, we are here to help.

A family may quality for our district F.A.S.T. program if there is a lack of a fixed, regular, or adequate night-time residence.
