More Than A Roof
The More Than A Roof Collaborative specifically focuses on a niche population of families living in hotels. This group often times does not qualify for certain services because they do not fall into the HUD defition of "homeless." However, that is exactly what these families are. They make just enough to pay for a low cost hotel, but are unable to save enough for a deposit. This type of environment has several implications for the development of the children.
With funding from the United Way, Project CATCH is working with different partners to meet the needs of these families, connecting them with various resources to ensure the safety and well being of the children.
Since August of 2015, this initiative has successfully housed 12 families!
