The Whole Child Family Housing
The Whole Child Family Housing provides housing services for homeless families that are built on the belief that homelessness ends when the family is provided with critical services and support that empower them to maintain permanent affordable housing. The Whole Child provides community based housing to immediately end homelessness and stabilize the family as well as mental health services, job training and placement, money management, and life skills to promote long-term success and housing permanency.
To be eligible for any service through The Whole Child Family Housing, a family seeking assistance:
- Must be a family with dependent children.
- Must be facing a housing crisis.
Because The Whole Child connects families with the most appropriate resource for which they are eligible, there may be additional eligibility criteria which the family may be required to meet.
Please be sure to bring the following when you meet with our Case Managers:
- Valid current California picture identification (CA ID, CA License, US Passport)
- Proof of Income
- Proof of Homelessness (Eviction Notice, DPSS Motel Assistance, etc.)
- Birth Certificate
