New Assistance for Parents

Are you a parent who needs help with employment, housing, transportation, or childcare?! We’re proud to partner with a local nonprofit, Restore Hope, in their new 100 Families initiative in Pulaski County.

This initiative helps families move from crisis to career, using existing community resources, by engaging community partners, training agencies on a collaborative case management system, and recruiting case managers to respond when a family is in crisis.

Get in touch today and find out if you qualify!
