Women & children are the most vulnerable of the homeless population. BCHF's primary goal is to get them off the street or friends' couches & into stable, safe, clean housing. We partner with local motels to provide immediate placement until an opening in one of our communal apartments becomes available.
BCHF provides information on local apartment complexes, trailer parks, & private landlords and work to ensure our clients can transition smoothly from our program into independent living.
Many of BCHF's clients have been wounded by past experiences. We partner with local counselors and faith-based organizations to help them deal with their pasts & find hope for their future.
Some of our clients are unemployed or underemployed. We assist them in obtaining the documents they need to find work & partner with local hiring teams to schedule interviews & work toward job placement.
BCHF assists our clients with obtaining other services such as health insurance as well as food & child care assistance.
BCHF is committed to ensuring our clients have the education & skills they need to succeed. We partner with them to help them obtain GED's and/or college or technical training.
Every client is required to complete a financial education course to ensure they understand how to build & maintain a budget as well as save for emergencies & the future.
Parenting classes are also available as needed.
We also offer cooking classes so our families are not dependent on fast food & microwaves.
