Why Family PASS:
“I receive many phone calls from people in our community who are on the doorstep of homelessness, looking for financial help to keep on the heat or pay for rent. These are people who need guidance and direction and are desperate to get out of the cycle of having to ask for help to keep their family under a roof. Family PASS understands that the cycle can only be broken by working closely with the family, providing for their most basic need of housing and guiding them to a permanent solution to stability. It is my desire to continue to reach out to those in our community with the greatest needs and help them break this vicious circle.”
