The Adopt-A-Family Program is a two year program that provides safe housing and guidance to homeless families in Tarrant County while helping them stabilize their lives and improve their education and job skills. A case manager works one on one with each family to formulate a plan leading to self sufficiency. The case manager assesses needs, strengths and areas requiring special support. Ultimately, the families who graduate from the Adopt-A-Family program become independent and self-sufficient.
