Helping Families Stay Together

The Strengthening Families Program serves families involved with the Department of Human Services, many of whom are dealing with major challenges, like homelessness, substance abuse, or domestic violence. This program helps families in crisis achieve stability by:

          – Connecting them to community resources

          – Developing sustainable supports

          – Offering one-on-one case management


“Without The Matthews House I would probably be living in a car, addicted to drugs, without my children or a future to look forward to. Instead we live as a family in a loving home and have an amazing future ahead of us. I am a survivor.” – Parent Participant

Family Coaching

Focuses on keeping families together by addressing the needs in each family’s life, including housing, job readiness, transportation, effective parenting, and money management.


Caregiver Support

Assists foster families caring for high-needs foster children by offering in-home support. This one-on-one support helps these children, who have experienced severe trauma and often exhibit challenging behaviors, avoid being placed in an institution.
