Research indicates that 81% of the total homeless population will enter and exit a shelter quickly. This population of homeless individuals and families have experienced a life-altering event such as job loss, natural disaster, divorce, abuse, or medical condition that drives them to homelessness.
Typically, these homeless individuals and families merely need a second chance to get their feet back on the ground, attain self-sufficiency, and move quickly toward acquiring some sort of permanent housing.
They need a temporary home to regroup, catch their breath and rebuild their lives. Families have become a growing segment of the homeless population due to unforeseen job loss or health care issues. In our efforts to end homelessness, HomeAid Northern California supports the building and remodeling of shelters and facilities that offer counseling, job training and support to rebuild lives.
