JOIN : words from Daniel

What JOIN does:

Last year, more than a quarter of the households that JOIN helped were families with children.  About 6% of the homeless people who are sleeping outside or in their cars are families with children. Families with children make up 36% of the total emergency shelter population, 50% of the transitional housing population, and 80% of the households accessing rent and mortgage assistance in our community.  Clearly, families in our community are struggling to meet basic needs, and find and retain stable housing. This threatens not just the individual health and well-being of the family, but the overall health of our community. Studies indicate that homelessness increases the likelihood that families will separate or dissolve – a traumatic event for families and a costly one for the community.  Even if the family is not separated, the effects of homelessness can be severe. The associated stress that results from economic, social, and psychological dislocations can negatively affect the health and well-being of both parents and children.

JOIN : words from Danny

What JOIN does:

JOIN’s organizational mission is to support the efforts of homeless individuals and families to transition from homelessness to permanent housing. JOIN’s guiding vision is a community where homelessness, if it exists at all, is a short-term circumstance rather than a long-term or chronic condition. Just last year, JOIN helped 560 people end their homeless and find permanent housing in 2014.  Of these households, 102 were families caring for 161 children under the age of 18.  82% of the total households found the support they needed to maintain stability for the long-term.

Words from Danny:

“When you’re homeless, people think that you’re lower- that you’re worth less or that you’re the dredge of society or something. I’m a pretty friendly, talkative guy, so that was hard for me. I felt judged- like people didn’t want to talk to me because they were afraid or something. I wanted to tell them that we’re equal, that you just have more material possessions than I do right now, and that anyone can slip into homelessness.” – Danny

JOIN : helping Angel and her kids

What JOIN does:

In addition to our street outreach- based housing placement efforts, JOIN’s Basic Service center, or what we call the “House,” is open Monday through Friday, 10am to 3pm. The House provides critical basic services to 80-100 people each day, services that both meet people’s immediate needs and spark and support transitions into housing, employment, and greater stability. Together with our housing placement efforts, JOIN strives to meet the needs of hundreds of homeless people each year.

Helping Angel and her Kids:

When sick kids have to “stay home” from school, options are limited for homeless families. “Angel” and her kids were happy to have the JOIN Family Room to relax, shower, and play with Legos.
