Partnering with sixteen non-profit, state and federal agencies, The Family Life Center was established in August, 2003 in response to the need for intensive wrap-around services and affordable, safe housing for families. The goal of the Center is to empower families to achieve self-sufficiency through a strength-based approach in a supportive, nurturing and safe environment. The Center includes seven three-bedroom and six two-bedroom fully furnished units, with additional common space.
The David Jon Louison Center is a non-profit organization that provides services to families experiencing homelessness. In addition to providing shelter for the families, the Center promotes self-sufficiency by providing case management and support services, including clinical services, workforce development, life skills building, financial literacy and parenting support. Today the Center is a 54-bed shelter, spread among three properties, that provides services to fifteen families experiencing homelessness. The three properties provide a "home-like" atmosphere for the families, which include children ranging in age from newborns to eighteen years, as well as their parents.
