Shelter and housing

Kids Plus does not represent a specific housing program. We can advocate for and help connect clients to appropriate shelters and housing programs.

Client-centered care

We understand that the experience of homelessness is often rooted in trauma and systems of oppression, including racism, sexism, and heterosexism. We take the time to listen to each family's unique story. Together, we identify individual, community, and system strengths and challenges to remove barriers and build supports as families work toward their goals.
