Our Model is more cost effective than doing nothing...Seriously
HomesUnited works towards developing more efficient homeless in Broward County.
Currently, if there was noting done to help the homeless get off the street it would cost approximately $47,000 per homeless per year due to hospital visits, food, etc. Other local programs that are actively trying to help get homeless off the street bring the cost per homeless per year up to approximately $87,000.
HomesUnited uses this collaborative effort model to make it only cost $16,000 to house and help and individual every year.
We strive to provide our clients with a mentor who will build a relationship with them and help guide them through their time in the homes. Our goal is to help every client reach financial independence and the mentors are the support they need. If you are interested in volunteering to be a mentor click this button for next steps.
We want to help and encourage our clients to get jobs and become better able to live on their own throughout their duration in the program. You can help by donating money to assist the clients in paying for their monthly reduced rent or consider providing rental assistance if you are an Organization or Business.
